Milford School District to follow remote learning model for start of school year
MILFORD, Del. – Milford’s School District is now the latest to say they will be starting the school year using a fully remote learning model. Thursday, the school board voted 5 to 1 in favor of the decision after teachers and parents voiced their concerns and opinions on the matter. To help with remote learning, a device will be provided for every student. School officials add that they will also work to support families who need access to internet service. The superintendent for the school district says this was the best decision to keep everyone safe.
“Until we know exact numbers, we’re not going to know that right here right now, so I thought we looked out for our staff, looked out for our people here, to try to keep people protected. I think we tried to look out here to take care of our students and make sure we provide them the best educational opportunities and we understand that fears are out there,” said Superintendent, Dr. Kevin Dickerson.
Officials say the remote learning plan will be discussed at the next virtual school board meeting which will be on Monday, August 17th at 7 PM.
