By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Education (MOE) issued additional guidance to teachers and principals this week on the rollout of the home-based learning activities that the ministry sanctioned due to the closure of schools for COVID-19 prevention.
Chief Education Officer, Dr. Carol Babb, released a video asking teachers and principals to be considerate of the emotional and financial state of the parents and students when preparing these assessments.
“Principals and teachers are asked to avoid requiring high-stakes assessment and imposing penalties when these assignments are not completed,” Babb said.
Babb also said that schools using online learning platforms are reminded that it is not advisable to have students sitting in front of a laptop or tablet all day, doing school work.
“As well, these options should only be used where students have adequate access,” Babb added.
Parents who have concerns about the home-based learning activities are encouraged to contact the MOE via its hotline numbers 615-7597 or 615-7402.
