I feel compassionate community based efforts and community focused support is the only thing that makes a real difference, in anyone's life. families and their children will face individual challenges and needs, whether they are home schooled or returning to a brick and mortar building. I'm thinking a call line?... where Rutherford county residents can speak w a person, get a referral, to meet their particular need. I.e. daycare, elder care, tutoring, ppe/healthcare, help w rent/utilities, domestic issues, crisis intervention, transportation, mental health, food assistance, addiction. There's prob many caring ppl, churches and or organisations that would be willing to lend a compassionate ear to callers while manning a phone line and given a list of resources. just my 2 cents lol! love ya'lls work at blue ridge.
I enrolled my child in an online public charter school last year. it was a great learning experience. to remain home schooled is not a problem for us. i'm especially thankful now for the option to home school in light of the covid crisis.
Thank you for responding Leah, I think that having the option allows us to remain flexible in light of the circumstance and allows us to mitigate the risks for our students. Do you have any ideas of how we can assist students that maybe a little bit vulnerable with staying home ?
