"This last point on cherry Gregor newsmaker of the week at the Philadelphia school district in less than two months for the schools have gone from analog to digital as officials work to create online classrooms for kids to accommodate the coronavirus lockdown but the transition has faced major challenges can connect with you in the system with us to discuss the current status of the digital learning program hi the flash point thank you a pleasure to be RT for Graham is up and running officially how to go this week this alarm is up and running officially things appear to be going well I mean we will know by Monday how the attendance was this week by large numbers of students have picked up Chromebooks now over eighty one thousand students to be exact and now teachers are engaging with students on a regular basis we're getting some really good feedback from some of our schools about the large numbers of children who are participating so things have gone relatively well considering that sometimes districts take years to transition to this type of approach and the fact that we transitioned over a matter of weeks is pretty extraordinary what does a typical you know school day look like for kids now it could be somewhere between three and three and a half hours of what we call a combination of asynchronous and synchronous learning and so asynchronous is learning on their own and at their own pace synchronous is more with like the typical classroom approach where everyone is doing the exact same thing teachers I have an office hours as well three and a half hours I mean it seems like it's a it's a far reduced from what a normal any person day would be is it a quick glance is it not equivalent nothing is going to be a sufficient replacement for day to day interactions of students I happen with teachers we actually are you saying this time and this approach to reduce as much as possible the repression that would normally occur when children are not in school and in addition we want we want to introduce some new content while we're at it as well and there was a period where this type of learning did not count these lessons are supposed to count I understand is that true yeah it's true and it really is meant to enhance not to make it worse and so a lot of the other grades are simply feedback for the children who are doing the lessons how do you get the kids back up to where they would have been had this never happened whenever we come back to it and get to some period of normalcy but I'm gonna have to assess everybody to determine where they are to determine what we will need to do to provide them with the enhanced in person supports in addition to the technological support to get them back to where they should have been had this year not been interrupted in the matter it was interrupted there were challenges that you all had the school district could you just give us a laundry list this was like put a new train on track when we first went out we thought Hey we'll be back in in two weeks less print some material so that children will have those materials to use three weeks into this the governor then announced goals would remain closed and so then we have to come up with a different way to provide children and teachers and adults quite frankly with training the tools that they needed in order to to utilize these resources and so we had to do a lot in terms of how do you stand up forty nine meal distribution sites that have now distributed almost two million meals how do you distribute eighty one thousand Chromebooks how do you make sure people get online to look for covert nineteen you guys are busy working on facilities how is that going first we could not even get into the facilities although they were close now we have the green light to get back and start some construction we have already started some lead abatement projects the multiple projects now going on because we're taking advantage of the time that schools are close gotta talk about class of twenty twenty this is a significant milestone for our young people just like that that opportunity to experience that milestone is taken away from not just high school college and we're planning something sure it's for the whole city and it's going to be a virtual a celebration we're gonna have some local celebrities who are going to be a part of that and so we're pleased that we're able to do that also gonna have every school every high school is also going to have a virtual celebration and then all of our high schools are also planning in person graduations once we get the green light to hold those ceremonies once it's safe how could pope in nineteen actually end up being a positive thing for the school district the fact that we're able to get every single child regardless of where they live in this city a Chromebook it is giving us an opportunity to think differently about education is only a place based thing now regardless of where a child lives in the city of Philadelphia we may now have access to that calculus class or that algebra two class with this technology it it's a different way to approach if we have a snow day we still have a major problem the soft around the inequity and that is the access to the internet going to need to think about this as a right to the information that's available just like we've talked about our right to food and nutrition you know what I don't want to say thank you so much to you Dr William height or criminal class point and I wish you luck as we wrap up this school year goes until
