GGUSD Launches Online Resources to Support At-Home Learning
- Friday, March 27, 2020
This week, Garden Grove Unified School District launched a new webpage, https://ggusd.us/covidresources, which is packed full of resources in three categories – academics, wellness, and community-based resources. The webpage is designed to be a one-stop-shop to support at-home learning for the district’s more than 41,000 students and their families.
The Academic Resources section includes learning packets by grade level, digital textbooks, and other tools to access virtual classrooms and support at-home learning. The Wellness Resources section includes information on supporting students’ mental health and socio-emotional well-being, including useful tips on coping with covid-related anxiety and a list of mental health related agencies. Community Resources includes free or low-cost services provided by community organizations, including help with access to free food, childcare, and internet services.
“Educators across the country are navigating uncharted territory and we are so proud of our teachers and instructional leaders for the innovative work they are doing to engage digitally with students and ensure learning continues,” said Board of Education President Walter Muneton. “This webpage will help ensure important resources are ready and available for our community with the click of a button.”
GGUSD schools continue to check out devices for students who need them, and community liaisons, school psychologists, and instructional aides have also been checking in on students. GGUSD is committed to expanding at-home learning and is working hard to keep families informed through ParentSquare and other digital resources. Families who need help navigating ParentSquare can visit https://ggusd.us/parentsquare.
