What’s all this about Learning Pods?
The idea is to give kids the opportunity to spend their distance learning days in small groups in private homes to limit exposure while providing a safe way to connect in person. It’s a hot topic in Boulder, and a Facebook group of BVSD families is coordinating building pods by neighborhood, grouping kids that may go to different schools. At Horizons, we’re discussing putting our own pods together based on in-school cohorts. That reduces contact even more and also allows kids to be working on the same thing together. We’re committed to developing an effective, equitable plan that supports students and teachers.
If you are interested in joining the conversation and adding your voice to how this concept could be brought to Horizons, email HorizonsCommunityGroup@gmail.com
. We’ll schedule a meeting, develop a questionnaire, and put together the most amazing Pods system ever!
