Important Message from Steven Chrisman, Superintendent
March 20, 2020:
I am hoping that this message is finding you and those closest to you doing well.
As you are no doubt aware, this COVID 19 pandemic is unprecedented and unpredictable. Last Thursday the 12th [March], Governor DeWine closed schools for three weeks. At that time we certainly hoped to see all of our staff and students back in our building teaching and learning by April 6th. To that extent, I communicated with you that the Career Center would be using our four calamity days allotted to us and make up the five days into June. While there is no official change to the Governor’s orders, we need to start to plan for an extended break.
The Career Center administrative team and technology team have collaborated with both our career technical instructors and our academic instructors. I am proud of the efforts of all involved and the Career Center is now prepared to begin delivering online instruction immediately. I know — you are on Spring Break next week. But on April 6th, teaching and learning will continue. Unfortunately there are going to be some lab experiences that simply cannot be replicated but we are committed to doing the best that we can.
Instructors will be contacting students directly via email with instructions on how to access these learning opportunities. Teachers will be using Google, Moodle and WebAssign to deliver instruction. We need the help of the parents and guardians to encourage students to make contact with their teachers and complete these online assignments. We will continue providing information as it becomes available. Please continue to check our website and find the tab COVID 19 for more information. Thank you and stay healthy.
The Medina County Career Center is committed to the education and safety of our students and staff.
