n the small town of Refugio, Texas, where evidence of Hurricane Harvey still remains, a lack of teachers has left a high school to rely on technology. During the 2017-18 school year, Refugio High School was in dire need of a Spanish teacher after their’s retired. Principal Brandon Duncan searched for the right candidate but could not fill the position; so he had to get creative. Duncan reached out to Proximity Learning, an online classroom program.  “It’s just the age we live in,” Duncan said. “It’s very accustomed to computers. To technology.” During that school year, with the help of Proximity Learning, Duncan saw a 100-percent passing rate for Refugio High School’s Spanish classes.
