Benton Harbor Schools on special education during the pandemic
BENTON HARBOR, Mich. – Benton Harbor Schools are making sure that no students are left behind with a continuity learning plan.
The continuity plan makes the transition to virtual learning easy.
According to school staff transition is just as hard on the general number of students, as it is those in special education courses.
The school staff though are keeping one thing in mind that students that require extra help and therapy is regression.
“Kids are getting more one on one time with the special education teacher so that’s been a benefit for the kids,” said Lorinda Robbins, Director of Special Education Benton Harbor Area Schools.
Some kids are needing additional time to catch up, but others regroup pretty fast.
“What we see if those kids not meeting that goal. Not necessarily any backwards movement where they’re losing skills. Some students without a lot of practice will lose some skills or not retain as much if they were coming every day,” said Robbins.
