Three days into distance learning, White County Director of Schools Kurt Dronebarger said the biggest challenge has been transitioning fully online.
He said the system is not built for the process, but the transition has gone smoother than expected. The system is sending out online packets, but those who do not have access to the internet can pick up paper packets.
“People have been really receptive,” Dronebarger said. “They have been very kind and patient as they have come through the lines. We have learned a lot and we are adjusting accordingly to make that transition or that process even smoother.”
Dronebarger said his goal was to make initial contact with everyone.
“We have got work into everybody’s hands that wanted it,” said Dronebarger. “We are still reaching out to students.”
Paper packet and food distribution happens every Monday through Thursday from 11am-1pm at all White County School locations.
