What are Learning Hubs?
Learning Hubs are small cohorts of 8-10 students who are invited to participate in virtual learning in the school building while supervised and supported by 2 experienced Learning Hub Supervisors. Through learning hubs students continue to receive virtual instruction from their same classroom teachers while receiving much needed support along with meals, social engagement, and access to reliable internet. For our learning hubs, we have prioritized students who have struggled with work completion and attendance and those who have been particularly challenged by home learning and believe that this intervention can make an important difference.
