The Medina Gazette recently published an article, “Distance Learning A Unique Challenge For ‘Hands-On’ Classrooms,” which highlighted Medina County Career Center’s educational challenges, solutions, and plans during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our director of technology, Dr. Mari Engelhart, has done a tremendous job helping us prepare for this and setting up necessary infrastructure. However, even considering that, our lab instructors and students are going to be facing difficult situations,” said Steven Chrisman, superintendent.
Chrisman added, “The district is readily prepared to move into online learning for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, made easier by the fact that many academic courses had large online components even before virus worries sprung up.”
The article includes reactions and plans from career-technical instructors including:
- Automotive Technology, Darin Lewis
- Chef and Restaurant Management, Tony Stanislo
- Cosmetology, Becky Hambley
