FRAMINGHAM – Superintendent of Schools Bob Tremblay issued this statement to parents tonight, March 19
We have all come to the realization that we are living in extraordinarily challenging times, and we completely understand that families and students are eager to continue learning through virtual means during this time of isolation.
Our district believes in the ability of ALL children to achieve at a high level with proper support, but there are significant factors that challenge our ability to achieve this goal through remote means.
Students with disabilities, for example, may require accommodations, modifications, specialized services, and, at times, 1:1 direct support. English Learners, similarly, need support and coaching that is individualized to match their level of language acquisition.
We are committed to all of our learners and to all of our families who are working tirelessly to fill the educational void that happened overnight.
We are preparing to engage EVERY child with a teacher or adult from their school.
We are rolling out technology resources and expanding internet access to enable ALL Framingham students to connect with us.
I just sent an email message to all FPS families and staff and I will continue to keep you posted on our efforts during this most unusual and challenging time in recent history.
Be well. Stay healthy. Distance yourself socially. Embrace family!
