MILLBURN, NJ — As the students in the Millburn School District continue their distance learning, Superintendent Dr. Christine Burton has been in regular contact through the email, sending out reminders and tips to students and parents in the district who are working through the decision to learn from home.
In the most recent letter sent by email from the district, Burton updated those in district about resources they could use and steps that could be undertaken.
"We are in continuous conversations with our Principals, Supervisors and teachers about ways to improve our teaching and learning experience," Burton wrote. "We are looking to phase in the use of more technology, and will be working with teachers, and providing training as needed, over the next week in order to bring additional teaching platforms to your students.
"You will be hearing more about these plans in the coming week," she added.
As Burton noted, CommonSense Media has compiled a comprehensive list of resources for parents to discuss current events during the pandemic. In addition, she reminded parents that they need to follow the principal's instructions for attendance submission, so that the learning counts as an official school day.
As always, residents can stay informed through the district's COVID-19/Distance Learning website and by submitting their questions or concerns to the district here. Burton noted the district will compile the answers as part of the Frequently Asked Questions posted on their COVID-19/Distance Learning website.
