JGESA COVID-19 Resources
JGESA understands that there are many questions around how students will learn. We are in uncharted waters and are doing our best to make this as simple as possible. If you have questions please feel free to reach out. Our goal is not only to provide an education for all our students, but to also maintain the amazing community of students, families and staff that make JGESA special.
JGESA and Distance Learning
JGESA will remain on a Distance Learning model as directed by the Minnesota Department of Education. This means students will work from home. Please update this survey to make sure you have all the supplies you need at home – this looks much like the document you filled out a week ago; we are asking you to update it again as circumstances may have changed. It also includes an updated Chromebook Agreement for those that have checked out a JGESA Chromebook for home use.
JGESA students will still be expected to read, practice math in Khan Academy, and work on projects daily. The JGESA project-based learning model lends itself well to a Distance Learning model. Our students are already well versed in designing and doing their own projects with Advisor guidance. This guidance will continue, simply online or via phone rather than in person.
Communication is key to making distance learning work. Not only will Advisors/Paras be checking in with students, but students and parents will need to communicate your needs with us. Email will be the primary communication from JGESA to parents. Please commit to checking your email daily. JGESA staff will be available 8:30 am-3:30 pm on weekdays. We ask for patience as some of our responses may take up to 48 hours during regular student contact days.
