Dublin: City program offering small group setting for younger students to learn during school day

'Stable cohorts' of up to 12 kids to do schoolwork while watched by city staffers

The city of Dublin is launching a new program that aims to support working parents by providing a place where their younger students can engage in distance learning in a small group setting at certain city facilities.

L.I.V.E 'n' Rec (Learning in a Virtual Environment) will help students in first through fifth grades adapt to distance learning by providing trained Parks and Community Services staff members for supervision, assistance and support from Aug. 17 through Sept. 25.

Students will be assigned to a stable cohort with a maximum of 12, undergo daily temperature monitoring, and practice social distancing and frequent hand washing. Supplies and equipment will be regularly sanitized.

After class time, students will take part in sports, fitness activities, playtime, arts and crafts, and "cooperative games."

Students must bring their own distance learning materials including laptops, headphones, pens and pencils, notebooks, and all other tools, as well as specific passwords and links needed to access schoolwork. No food will be provided and students must bring their own lunches, snacks and drinks.
