Cool Schools: Ascension Episcopal School

Posted: Updated:

Today's COOL SCHOOL is Ascension Episcopal School. Last month when freezing temperatures and icy roads forced schools to close, the administration at Ascension began preparations with the Upper School faculty to offer a virtual school day to allow students to participate in their regular classes while at home. Teachers prepared a lesson on a virtual platform, then students and parents were emailed instructions and expectations for how the virtual school day would work. Lessons were included on YouTube, assigned TED talks, and other interactions on Google Classrooms. 

Because of the success of the pilot program virtually no instruction time was missed and the school year won't need to be extended. With a few tweaks, missed classroom time in the future could be averted by these virtual lessons.

If you have a COOL SCHOOL, let us know. Send Dave Baker an email to weather@katctv.com. Put COOL SCHOOLS in the subject line. Include a picture and a short story about why your school is COOL. We do COOL SCHOOLS every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
