Continuity of Learning
These are unprecedented times for K - 12 education across the Commonwealth and our nation, and our extended school closing will help limit the spread of COVID-19, but it creates previously unknown challenges and interruptions to the learning process.
The Falmouth Public Schools has curated a rich complement of learning tools and resources for students and families to use to create routines and to maintain a connection to our school community during this time of social distancing and isolation. Members of our instructional leadership representing all subjects and grade levels have contributed to the content offered in the Continuity of Learning Plans. As a team, they determined how to provide age, grade, and content relevant learning opportunities that include in-home activities, paper-based tasks, and online connections, including Google Classroom.
All resources, programming, and materials are those with which our students are familiar and have both prior exposure and sustained access.
Please know that the key intent is to help students stay connected to school. Assignments are similar in nature to those students may be assigned in the summer to keep fluency with the skills and content they learned in the previous school year. These assignments can be used as springboards to other activities and conversations about learning opportunities students and families can create together. We will periodically make updates as they are available. If paper resources need to be distributed, we will announce pick up times and locations.
These materials are not intended to introduce new material, and students' work will not be assigned a grade. By engaging in continuity of learning exercises, students will help their teachers find the place from which they can start again when they are reunited in their schools.
