GLCPS Launching Its Hybrid Learning Plan April 5th

GLCPS will return to in-person learning on April 5, 2021 with the launch of the school's Hybrid Learning Plan. Parents have been notified and are asked to complete the Hybrid Learning Survey for each of their students. The survey asks families if they will send their students to school or will continue using the Remote Learning Model.

GLCPS Announces Launch of Its Hybrid Learning Plan

Global Learning Charter Public School will tentatively begin its Hybrid Learning Model on Monday, March 22, 2021. Executive Director Stephen Furtado, Ph.D., shared the new information with parents in a letter, a day after discussing the plan with GLCPS staff. In the letter, Dr. Furtado noted that the number of Covid 19 cases continues to decline across the state. He emphasized that the school would launch its hybrid plan only if the staff has had sufficient opportunity to receive both doses of the vaccine or New Bedford remains in the "green" range for four consecutive weeks.
"Therefore I am cautioning everyone that the projected date could change if the above criteria do not occur," Dr. Furtado wrote in the letter.

Steps for Handling Issues with Your Wifi Connection

Inclement weather can affect our ability to maintain the connection with students and staff. Therefore, we should be ready to be flexible.  

If students experience connectivity issues:
1. Call the main office or email to let the school know.
2. When possible, students are to follow their schedule by going to the Google classroom and completing the assignments to the best of their ability.
3. Teachers will remain on Zoom as a resource to any students who can connect. 
4. Students are to check their Zoom connection often and rejoin regular classes when the connection is good.
If your teacher experiences connectivity issues:
1. Call the main office at 508-991-4105 or email to inform the school.
2. Report to Zoom and remain in the wait room for 5 minutes for another teacher to come in for instructions (if possible). If they do not, check your email for further instruction.   
3. Go to the Google classroom of the teacher who is experiencing technical difficulties and complete the assignments to the best of your ability.
4. Follow the rest of your schedule normally. Teachers are in different locations. If one teacher is experiencing difficulties it does not mean that all teachers are.
Wifi and weather often do not play well with each other which can be frustrating. We believe these steps wilresult in a smoother experience for both students and staff.
