Mechanicville students allowed in building while teachers stream lessons

Classroom Progress Report

MECHANICVILLE, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The Mechanicville City School District is adjusting remote learning plans by allowing students in school while teachers stream lessons from a different classroom. Parents, however, only have until Friday afternoon to decide if this is a good fit for their family.

With an increase in positive coronavirus cases in Saratoga County and an expected continued increase of cases in the weeks to come after the holidays, the Mechanicville district has developed a plan allowing parents to decide whether they would like their child to learn virtually at home or virtually at school with faculty supervision.

In a letter from Superintendent Bruce Potter, students in Kindergarten through fifth grade have the option to return to school, but teachers will be isolated in empty classrooms and offices and then stream the lesson to their assigned students.

The superintendent also said special area teachers and support members will be in the building to supervise the in-person learning, and teachers under mandatory quarantine will have the option to teach from home and have themselves projected to in-person students.

Elementary parents have until noon on Friday to decide if they would like this form of learning for their child.
