Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Brewster Online will commence Monday, March 30. Brewster is a school that regularly integrates technology throughout our curriculum, so we are well positioned for this shift. Our teachers will continue to use the online learning management system they’ve used all year with their students—so there will be little to no learning curve for students or teachers in that regard.
Faculty are adapting their curriculum for the remaining modules of their current courses. Each module’s goals will remain the same, but the methods will be adjusted. Teachers and classes will meet online, but students will not be passively sitting in front of a monitor for an entire day of learning. Our students can expect a mixture of group chats, prepared lessons that they can access in their own time, independent work, and one-on-one video time with their teachers and advisors.
Brewster faculty will be checking in with students -- not checking up on students. As always, faculty will prioritize building strong relationships with students and will make themselves available to support students and parents alike as we adjust to this new landscape. By working together we will achieve far more than instilling students with content knowledge. We will support the development of critical life skills, while also ensuring that all students continue to feel a part of a vibrant community of like minds -- like minds that care deeply about their success and their path forward in uncertain times.
