Ravens Return with Hybrid-Learning Model
Following the spring semester’s historic shift to remote learning, Ravenscroft students and faculty have returned to campus for the new school year with a hybrid-learning model that provides flexibility and continuity as the state and nation continue to manage the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new school year started on Aug. 13 following mandatory safety training for all employees and students. New protocols and procedures include daily health screenings, mandatory face coverings, physical distancing and changes to daily routines to minimize exposure for teachers and students beyond their core class groupings.
The return to school includes new health protocols, such as mandatory cloth face coverings and verification of students’ daily health screenings.
Over the summer, Ravenscroft invested more than $1M in technology upgrades, teacher professional development, personal protective equipment and facility enhancements to safely roll out the hybrid model, a combination of on-campus learning and remote access for students who need or prefer to remain at home.
“We are so grateful for the work the faculty did this summer to prepare for the school year. Professional development on hybrid learning, student engagement, and Canvas, our new learning management system, has provided the faculty the tools needed for a successful learning experience for all students,” Colleen Ramsden, Associate Head of School for Academics and Student Life, said.
