Please, add daily live meetings to Great Neck elementary school online instruction!
We ask the Great Neck public schools’ officials kindly take into consideration adding daily live meetings to elementary online instructions.
For many children, school represents a place of stability, of family, of belonging. The school’s role, and students’ relationships with teachers have never been more important than now. The online learning plan should include some daily interaction between teachers and students including live meetings as implemented in many excellent public schools, for example, Syosset Public Schools.
GNPS has needed resources to implement live meetings. Live meetings allow eye contact, body language, smile, voice, etc. to become the inseparable parts of high-quality education and teacher-student bonding. These meetings would improve the mental wellbeing of the students, give them the feeling of connectedness, structure and supervision.
Please see the attached SYOSSET CENTRAL SCHOOL DISTRICT ONLINE LEARNING PLAN ELEMENTARY LEVEL that includes twice daily, Monday through Friday, one session with the classroom teacher and another with a special area teacher each 40 minutes.
We also want to acknowledge the great job our teachers doing currently with the tools they’re allowed to use. We believe they could achieve even more adding the live meeting tool.
Thank you for your consideration.
