New Online Courses for Students Impacted by Hurricane Sandy

Filed under: Educational Technology — admin @ 12:32 am


NYC Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott yesterday announced that the Department of Education will offer online courses to students who have been impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Students in grades six through 12 who have been displaced from their homes and/or reassigned to other schools while their buildings undergo repairs for storm damage, are eligible to enroll in online classes for core subject areas and electives, including English, math, economics, calculus, world history and Spanish. The initiative is intended to prevent learning loss for students who have had to move from their homes or schools and whose school attendance has been affected. The courses are made possible through an extension of iZone, the Department of Education’s program that supports innovative models of teaching including online tools for classroom learning, and through the donation of program licenses from partners Apex Learning, Desire2Learn and Powerspeak.
