To answer questions from parents and put them at ease, CMSD also created a video library last month.

Some of the questions will include:

  • For those teachers who are not well versed with technology, how are they feeling now after extensive training?
  • CMSD has a tool to check and see if kids are engaged from home. Can you explain that?
  • Are snow days a thing of the past?
  • How will you reach those kids who don’t have the parental support at home to help with online learning?
  • Did you have enough equipment to provide all kids with what they need?
