Educators go to great lengths to follow up with students absent from remote learning

As schools moved online in response to the pandemic, some students went missing. Determined educators in Detroit, Michigan followed up with the families of students who had been absent from remote learning. If several phone calls were not returned, some teachers went directly to the student’s house to try to find them and make sure they were okay. Detroit has been hit hard by the coronavirus and many families had lost someone or needed extra support. One school kept a log of daily calls to families in a shared spreadsheet and made note of anyone who was sick or facing financial challenges. The school has been using the log to organize condolence cards, gift cards, and grief counseling for families. #education #covid-19
