July 31, 2020

To All Connected to Liberty Union-Thurston Schools,

          Many people have asked, What will be different for remotely learning in the fall of 2020 from the spring of 2020?  The Liberty Union Schools have been busy preparing for the reopening of school.  The current plan is to return with 100% remote learning -- Public Health Alert System Level 3 Color Red and Liberty Union Schools Tier 3. Yes, this is the same delivery method that we moved to in March, but some things will be different now than in the spring:

  • Many curriculum products have been digitized to be offered in a remote learning setting

  • Teachers will be provided on-going professional development through an Ashland University online course entitled Online Education Best Practices

  • Teacher expectations have been developed regarding: communication, weekly schedule of assignments, office hours, and online teaching; additionally teachers will be in the school buildings with access to all of their instructional materials

  • Attendance Guidelines have been provided by the Ohio Department of Education

  • Parent tutorials are being made to help assist with technology and curriculum resources
