BCSD teacher workday Friday; No new student lessons to be assigned Friday

Published Wednesday, April 1, 2020
Berkeley County School District teachers have worked extremely hard to share engaging eLearning lessons for students since March 18, and they are now preparing for the transition to a new blended learning platform. To support these efforts, BCSD will recognize Friday, April 3, as a teacher workday, and no new student lessons will be assigned on Friday. Teachers will also have a workday on Friday, April 10, which was previously scheduled on the calendar. 
"Our teachers have been instrumental in shifting the delivery of instruction in a short amount of time, and it is important that we provide them the opportunity to think, plan and work together to support this modified learning model," said BCSD Chief Academic and Innovation Officer Dr. Kelly Wulf. "Teachers will not have scheduled office hours Friday but will be eager to work with their students again on Monday." 
Superintendent Eddie Ingram understands the difficulties and uncertainties many families are facing, and he is hopeful that everyone will take time to rest, read, go for a walk or just spend time with each other. 
“We appreciate the commitment of our students, and the parents who support them, to complete assignments and continue their learning,” said BCSD Superintendent Eddie Ingram. “Please use Friday as an opportunity to review and ‘catch-up’ or enjoy a day with your family. We are confident that this transition to a blended learning platform will bring relief to teachers, students and parents.”
Information for parents and students about the new learning platform will be forthcoming.
Feeding sites will operate normally on teacher workdays. Please regularly check our list of student feeding sites as information is updated daily.
