LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The report cards are in and distance learning is proving to be a struggle for many students in Southern Nevada.
During the fall 2020 semester, the Clark County School District says 90.4% of comprehensive schools assigned more F grades than in the fall of 2019 and 77.2% of schools assigned more D grades this year than last.
Elementary schools also ranked highest for most students with at least one first semester grade of an F.
Tutor John Bruchhagen of Infinity The Math Institute says changes to learning due to the pandemic has been frustrating for all.
“I have kids that do the homework but not turned in the right way. The communication between the student and teacher is lacking,” Bruchhagen said.
Supplemental help is not new to the education process and with continued remote learning Bruchhagen says it’s really needed now.
“All kids need just a little bit of special attention and to be explained a certain way when they don’t understand something and you don’t get that from distance learning,” said Bruchhagen.
CCSD is set to hold a board meeting regarding COVID-19 and distance learning on Thursday.
