ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Staff at Roseburg Public Schools will be providing supplemental learning materials to students and their families throughout the school closure.
District staff said the goal is to keep students learning and engaged while they’re not in school.
They said the material could range from online lessons from tutoring websites to at-home activities, such as reading or writing.
District staff said the material is completely optional and it will not be graded.
Michelle Knee, director of teaching and learning, said the district is doing everything they can to support students during this time.
“(We want) to let them know that their teachers are thinking of them, that we miss them, and to keep them engaged to learning,” said Knee.
Teachers began reaching out to each student individually Monday. The teachers are expected to check in with the student, ask how they are doing with the material and they will ask if the families need any assistance.
The district will also provide Chromebooks to students who want to participate but don’t have internet access at home. They said they will get that information from the teacher check-ins.
