Gary Community School Corporation Implements Remote Instruction for Teachers in Light of COVID-19
Spike in COVID-19 Cases leads District to Close School Buildings
In light of growing COVID-19 cases in Northwest Indiana and nationwide, the teachers of the Gary Community School Corporation will begin full-time remote instruction effective Monday, November 16, 2020.
“Our team made this decision out of concern for the safety of our teachers and staff who have been coming into our buildings three days a week to deliver instruction,” said GCSC Manager Dr. Paige McNulty. “Until it is deemed safe by health officials, our buildings will remain closed, and we will continue with our virtual learning platform remotely.”
McNulty added that essential administrative and IT team members will be onsite to conduct District business and facilitate any technical assistance needed by teachers, students and parents.
