Dear GJPS Families,

On Thursday, September 10th, the district hosted a Q & A session about our learning models. We were not able to answer all of your questions in the time allotted, so we have done so here for you. If you would like to watch a recording of Thursday’s Q & A session, you can find it here. The session begins at the 22:00 mark.

We are very proud of the work our teachers are doing with distance learning. These questions address our hybrid and distance learning options. Our plan is to leverage technology to allow for students to learn from GJPS teachers and learn in an engaging manner with access to our rich array of curricular offerings.

In this fluid, dynamic and difficult time, we also want to create learning models that allow for flexibility. We aim to keep learning going during this pandemic. If teachers or students need to quarantine, for instance, but they are well enough to work or learn, we want to avail them that opportunity. Our goal is to provide as much connected learning to students as possible, and should we have to do distance learning district-wide again after shifting to our hybrid plan, we will be able to make that switch as smoothly as possible.

We know these are not easy times for anyone. We all crave normalcy. We all yearn for a time that is safer, easier, and less hectic. We all hope that time comes soon. All of us want to create the best learning experience we can for our students and families, given our enormous challenges and constraints. We look forward to partnering with all of you to do just that.

Sincerely,

Steve Barrett
Superintendent
Gahanna-Jefferson Schools
