Summer in San Diego is usually a delight, but in 2020, it’s involved a lot of apprehension among parents and teachers alike as they prepare for an uncertain school season. In July, some of that uncertainty was removed as the San Diego and Los Angeles Unified School Districts revealed in a joint statement that they’d stick with online-only education when fall arrives.
No perfect solution exists in the age of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Still, it’s increasingly clear that the schools that open successfully are situated in regions with declining infection rates and the mass availability of on-demand testing. Otherwise, the risks of reopening may be too great to overcome, even with mitigation efforts, such as masks and social distancing. For this reason, decision-makers in San Diego and Los Angeles feel that it’s best to abide by the virtual model that took over for the last portion of the 2019-2020 school year.
The challenges presented by this online-based model are considerable. Beyond issues of child care, many people simply don’t have the network connections or devices needed for effective digital learning. Without these essentials, children may suffer interruptions from poor connections or slow computers. This can have a detrimental impact on an already difficult approach to education.
Thankfully, it’s possible for local students to return to virtual learning while avoiding many of the tech issues that overshadowed early digital efforts. With a little extra guidance, families can craft at-home classrooms that support stress-free online learning.
