NZISD sees high student response rate

Posted

North Zulch Independent School District (NZISD) officials announced a 93% success rate from their students in regards to at-home learning through packets and digital options, which were provided to continue instruction during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are all very pleased with the response we have had and the level of engagement,” said North Zulch Elementary Principal Janie Pope. “We felt like we were going to have a high percentage going into this, but I think even this has surprised us. It is not just the students, but we have seen so much support from the parents as well.”

The district provided weekly packets for their students to pick up and drop off at campus during a designated time. After discussing the process with teachers in the district, Curriculum Director Lea Ann Andrus stated the way the administration handled the process did wonders for those involved.

“The resounding theme from most of the teachers I spoke with was they felt like we had the success that we did because of our cohesive plan that the district drafted and followed weekly,” said Andrus.

Using their new at-home learning webpage on the district website, students and parents were able to access additional resources such as how-to videos and extra activities to further understand the subject.

The district also provided a weekly home delivery operation to drop off and pickup packets at students’ homes who requested the service. The team was comprised of district teachers, administrators and paraprofessionals.

“Providing those options for families helped us receive the high percentage we did,” said Andrus.

The last week of instruction was used to allow students who were behind on any work to catch up in order to turn everything in before the deadline. Students who had already finished their assigned work completed family learning activities at home.
