District And School-Based Listening Sessions On Distance Learning Plan

 

Grand Rapids Public Schools today announced a series of listening sessions to gather input from students, parents, and staff specifically about the district’s distance learning plan (COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan) implementation and related instructional matters impacting it. The goals are to learn what is working, what is not working, what are barriers, and what are new opportunities and/or ideas for how to improve the current and future distance learning plans. 
 
School-based virtual listening sessions will be held between Tuesday, September 8 and Monday, September 14 with schools communicating directly with students and parents about the individual dates and times. The dates and times for the individual school-based virtual listening sessions are published below:
