Superintendent’s Message

eLearning - Week Two​​

My dad occasionally talked about attending a one-room schoolhouse during his childhood years in the early 1940’s. He would boast that as one of the youngest in the class, he sat on the teacher’s lap while she instructed the rest. I would assume in this rural part of Missouri there would not have been more than 10 students total in the class. How could this teacher teach Algebra to a 10th grader, ABCs to a 1st grader, and lessons on the Civil War to a 6th grader? Most likely, some of the students didn’t have great attendance as harvesting took priority in certain seasons. In addition, there was no school cafeteria meaning students had to bring a cold lunch from home, if there was food available to bring. Contact with the parents was limited or non-existent, and the mode of transportation to and from school required two feet.


In the last week, many of you may have felt we have reverted back to this point in the 20th century. Parents have stepped up to become their child’s teacher. Some have jumped at the opportunity while others were ready for recess after one hour. Some have imparted knowledge or experiences in teaching, as others have been overwhelmed by the level of study. We have loved the pictures of our students working on their assignments or Chromebooks during this period. We hope our folks will continue to share achievements, projects, and collaborations taking place inside the home. 


So, what’s working well with our new approach to education? First of all, I am very pleased with the work put forth by our staff to prepare solid lessons. We were one of only a handful of districts in the state that were approved for eLearning originally; therefore, our students have been using their Chromebooks for that very purpose and doing well. Our meal delivery is meeting some critical needs, and the numbers requesting meals continue to grow. Finally, the communication between home and school remains productive and extremely positive.


However, just like my dad’s one-room schoolhouse, there are things we have become so accustomed to that are no longer part of our everyday school life. I firmly believe the best instruction comes directly from the teacher. That teacher knows the level of comprehension of each student and when interventions are needed. Our students were guaranteed a hug, a pat on the back, or a fist bump just for being present. We are going to be successful with school during this pandemic, but we sure miss our students!
