CORONAVIRUS: Adjustments aplenty for USD 251 students, staff USD 251 North Lyon County logo

COVID-19 has caused adjustments all around for area school districts.


The most obvious one is the change from in-class education to a general combination of online and packet learning for most districts. On KVOE's Newsmaker 3 segment Monday, USD 251 North Lyon County Superintendent Mike Mathes said teachers have had to adjust in another way.

Teachers have also said they were disappointed in the effort of some students, but Mathes says that is to be expected as certain students do well with the new combination of online and packet learning and other students not faring so well.

Mathes says he's proud of teachers, support staff and administrators for their work to change the education delivery method in short order to make sure students were getting a god education under trying circumstances.

Mathes says parents and patrons can expect an online survey soon so the district can better tailor the current model and adjust before the end of the school year.

For the rest of the week, superintendents and principals will have their status reports on the KVOE Newsmaker segment at 7:15 am. USD 252 Southern Lyon County Superintendent Mike Argabright joins Tuesday's program. USD 253 Emporia Superintendent Kevin Case joins the show Wednesday. Sacred Heart Principal Darby O'Neill is Thursday's guest and Emporia Christian School Principal Trisha Fullerton appears Friday.
