School Board approves virtual learning options

The Canton School Board held their monthly meeting last week, with a variety of items on the agenda as the new school year approaches. Of those items, no matter was discussed more than the plan for school to return this coming fall.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been felt across the globe, causing schools throughout Oklahoma to shut down in order to slow the spread of the virus in March. Now with August 13 quickly approaching, Oklahoma school districts are having to come up with a plan to return to school. While there is still very little that is set in stone those districts are attempting to prepare for a variety of scenarios that could present themselves once the schools open back up.

One thing that has been decided is that a virtual/ distance learning option will be provided by Canton, essentially giving parents the opportunity to choose whether they want to send their child to school or have them educated through the distance-learning format.

With that in mind, Canton’s school board approved a list of policies that will be put in place to do things such as ensure that their school is as safe as it can be under the current circumstances, as well as making the distance-learning option as quality of an experience as possible.
