The Jeffco Restart Plan is all about Hybrid – when and how students can go to physical classrooms. But in all of the scenarios students will still be doing Remote Learning 80% of the time.
That makes internet access extremely important. Yet, the Plan didn’t even mention this.
- The Plan didn’t mention how the District would identify students needing Internet access prior to August
- The Plan didn’t mention how the District would ensure ALL students would get Internet access at their place of residence
- The Plan didn’t discuss the cost of providing Internet access
In essence, the Plan didn’t even touch on a key component of EQUITY in the Restart Plan – ensuring Internet access for everyone.
That is just so disappointing. Equity? Jeffco likes to talk about it, but when it comes to making sure it happens, it’s all about ensuring the activist soccer moms are happy.
