LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Lincoln Public Schools and Lincoln Education Association jointly announced on Monday that adjustments have been made to the first week of school schedule for remote learners.

“We appreciate all of the hours our staff have dedicated to preparing for the school year, and we understand this is a large undertaking,” said Superintendent Steve Joel. “Every year teachers work very hard to set high expectations by establishing strong procedures and routines. This year in-person and remote learning creates a new set of expectations to support learning during a pandemic. We understand this will not be perfect, but we want to give our teachers as much time as possible to become more comfortable in delivering Zoom-in instruction.”

The first week of school , Aug. 12 to Aug. 14, will be used to teach and review protocols for in-person learning. Starting Aug. 17, high school students Zooming-in during the 3/2 schedule and all remote learners will Zoom-in to class.

“I join with Dr. Joel and the Board of Education in expressing deep appreciation for teachers and all LPS staff who are dealing with the monumental task of working with both in-person and remote learners while in the midst of a pandemic,” said LEA President Rita Bennett. “LEA appreciates that the district listened to teacher feedback and that we’ve been able to work together to make adjustments in an effort to be responsive to teachers’ needs as they prepare to work with all students.”
