A virtual townhall examining how effective our State has been in response to administering virtual learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.

About this Event

Have you been wondering how your State, district and school has been performing throughout the pandemic and how they are going about measuring student and school performance?

Do you feel that your students have received adequate instruction and support in their virtual learning environment?

Do you have suggestions on ways that virtual learning can be improved should it have to continue moving forward into the spring semester of 2021?

The NCPTA Gates Team is pleased to invite you to join us for our final virtual town hall of the year entitled: Virtual Learning during a Pandemic: Are we Surviving or Thriving? The event is scheduled to take place on December 12th at 10:00am and will occur via Zoom. During the event, we will take a closer look at how effective our State has been in response to administering virtual learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will be joined by a panel of parents, school, district and state representatives, who will share their experiences and feedback on how our State has responded to virtual learning in the midst of the pandemic. Join us as the NCPTA committees lead round table conversations about operating your PTA and managing life in our new normal of the virtual world.

The world has been in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic since early 2020. Our education system as we once knew it will forever be changed. After being forced to pivot from in-person to virtual learning within a matter of days in the middle of the spring semester, many schools across the nation struggled to keep students and families engaged, due to lack of access and resources.

Many school districts across the state of North Carolina were nowhere near being prepared to transition to a fully remote virtual learning environment. Not to mention the fact that families did not even have adequate time to respond to the swift transition. With issues ranging from little to lack of internet access to some families having to continue to go out into the world each day to work and pay their bills, the education of our children was challenged to the fullest extent.

Fast-forward to present-day. The pandemic is still running rampant and forcing school districts to once again decide the best way to administer instruction as they continue to strive to support the needs of all students across the State. The real question at hand is whether or not we are simply meeting the mark and doing just enough to get by or are we exceeding expectations, even despite our present circumstances?
