Johnston Schools Adjusting Online Classes

JOHNSTON, Iowa - The Johnston school district is addressing complaints from parents about online classes.

The school board voted Monday night to change its online learning platform, which should be introduced in the next semester in January.

WHO-TV reports the new curriculum will involve daily interaction between teachers and students, which has been missing. The move involves ditching the Calvert learning program in favor of the Seesaw platform.

The Johnston district voted last week to scrap its combination of on-site/online classes and start bringing students back in-person five days a week.

But many families have still been opting for online only classes in Johnston.

Eleven Johnston staff members and 68 students are currently in isolation or quarantine over COVID-19 concerns.
