As schools work on uprooting the way they teach children due to school closures, shifting to exclusively online instruction isn’t a reality for many New Mexican districts.
Public Education Secretary Ryan Stewart announced Friday that statewide school closures will be extended for the rest of the current academic year, due to rising coronavirus infection rates. But students will still be taught without in-person instruction – an effort that will look different depending on where children go to school.
The PED is not requiring districts to use a wholly virtual learning model. Stewart said districts and charters will be creating plans to continue learning and those plans will address how instruction will get to students – physically, digitally or both.
