Huge effort underway
By Josh Resnek
At home instruction under the management of the School Department and its staff of teachers, administrators and assistants is now underway to augment the closure of classroom instruction which began March 12 with real time video and audio instruction on the computer.
This effort is now underway with a free supply of Chromebook laptops now being distributed to parents of students for their use.
Free distribution of the laptops began Tuesday at the Encore site and was very well received by a steady stream of parents who picked up the computers in a drive through staffed by School Department employees and volunteers.
An estimated 7,000 Everett public school students are presently at home.
It is not known yet how such instruction will impact on state education department requirements for students to be deemed to have finished a school year.
At this moment, with the coronavirus spreading rapidly and the city, state and nation in lock down, the school department has been rushing to set-up virtual teaching for Everett students by their teachers to fill the void caused by the closure of the schools.
Four Everett residents have recently been named to the Dean’s List at Boston University for the Fall semester. Students recognized for this honor include: Selena B. Hernandez, Camila Morare, Alisa Pham, Tiago Souza. Each school and college at Boston University has their own criterion for the Dean’s List, but students generally must attain a 3.5 grade point average (on a 4.0 scale), or be in the top 30 percent of their class, as well as a full course load as a full time student.
