Catholic schools in the Diocese of Grand Rapids closed their buildings in mid-March to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Learning did not stop, though.
Teachers, together with the hard work and assistance of parents, worked to provide the full value of a Catholic education. They continued introducing new content, standards, instruction and assessment according to our curriculum. This instructional material included a variety of formats, including live online video lessons from teachers, recorded videos, reading assignments, and more.
These efforts helped ensure that student learning continued with success while navigating the challenge of COVID-19.
See some examples of these learning activities in the social media posts embedded below.

I work alongside the best teachers & leaders @dogrschools. We are on day 47 of 53 of remote learning. Today we had 134 participants on our final teacher call, on a Friday afternoon in late May ❤️ @EWeaverGR @dfaber7 pic.twitter.com/tZ6CoVF1Pj
