Our technology planning aims to minimize the use of shared devices. Disinfecting sprays and wipes will be located in proximity to any and all shared devices (such as department computers, copy machines, Chromebooks, etc.), and these will be wiped down according to posted housekeeping disinfectant protocols after every use.
The school will provide equipment and/or internet access consistent with our non-tuition financial aid procedures to facilitate distance learning for students who are not scheduled to attend in-person classes and for faculty to teach in our hybrid learning model. The school has conducted a device survey to ensure that families will have access to computers and internet access sufficient to support learning from home.
All classes in every division will begin the year with a virtual classroom enabled, via Seesaw for kindergarten and lower school students, and via Google Classroom for preschool and grades 4 through 12. In addition to the training provided to faculty during the spring, summer, and at the start of the school year, the technology team will work with each division to provide orientation and training to students in the tools being used for distance learning as the school year begins. This division-wide training will be supplemented by faculty-led instruction in any tools being used by individual teachers.
