No one knew how much the coronavirus pandemic would impact K-12 learning. Schools, including Uncommon Schools, initially made sure their students had enough learning packets and assignments for about two weeks. It quickly became apparent that more was needed.
Starting March 30, every Uncommon student will be on a virtual school program with daily lessons recorded by teachers, as well as one-on-one video calls for 10-20 minutes each week.
“If you would have told me a month ago that we would have a whole online program up and running in less than a week, I would have told you you are crazy,” said Juliana Worrell, Chief Schools Officer, K-8. “But somehow we made it work.”
