Distance learning for primary schools to commence on Monday

Posted: Saturday, September 5, 2020. 2:47 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting millions of people worldwide.

Undoubtedly, COVID-19 impacted the way we work, learn, the way we socialize and our entire way of living.

Classes in Belize were suspended in March and many schools tried to accommodate students and parents with learning packages and the setting up of Google Classroom.

Officially, classes are set to resume for primary schools on Monday.

Schools and teachers have prepared for distance learning with the use of online platforms and in some instances printed learning packages.

Teachers have been engaged in completing their Learning Continuity plans in order to reach all their students.

The curriculum remains in effect and focus is on literacy and numeracy.

While, the Ministry of Education remains optimistic that classes would be able to resume face to face learning soon, a new normal in health and safety regulations and preparations will need to be adhered to.

The Ministry of Education has also launched homeschooling applications for parents prepared to home-school their children.

In case of parents who applied for homeschooling, the Ministry noted that it would be conducting periodic checks to ensure that the child is receiving quality education, including an end-of-year assessment to gauge the effectiveness of the home schooling.

Parents are encouraged to provide support and encourage reading as much as possible at home.
