Distance Learning makes a comeback in PUSD

At the September 9 school board meeting, Dr. Cheryl Wozniak, Assistant Superintendent, Educational Services gave a presentation on a recent survey to students, parents, and staff regarding distance learning (DL) experiences during the first three weeks of instruction. Some 700 parents, 327 middle and high school students, and 134 staff (paraprofessionals, teachers, and specialists) participated in this survey.

The school board stated they have enough expertise on the board to decide their own school shut down criteria.
