Students recently completed such curriculum during scheduled and weather-related work-from-home days this academic year. Courses included media bias, personal finance, CPR, first aid and bicycle safety. The curriculum is not required by any state or federal education mandates, but Superintendent Will Schofield said “this is something the board has said is important.” It’s also a way to keep students engaged in learning when, for example, tropical storms and snowstorms blow through the region, as they did this school year, forcing closures. “That’s precious learning time lost,” Schofield said.
