In-person Learning Taking a Fall
Extended Learning Pays off
As COVID-19 cases continue to swell statewide and in Santa Fe with the swift spread of the omicron variant, including in local schools, a teachers union Monday urged Santa Fe Public Schools to consider shifting to a four-day week on campus, reserving Fridays for remote, “asynchronous” learning.
In Santa Fe, many children struggle with poverty, which affects their learning. More than 71 percent of students in Santa Fe qualify for free and reduced lunch, and come from families and/or cultural and linguistic backgrounds that have historically been marginalized. These programs add days to the school calendar to help recover the in-person instructional time lost to the pandemic.
