Hello and welcome to fall (at least, from the temperature). Yes, the Regent Reporter usually arrives in your inbox on the first of the month (and you can still expect that in the future), but this month we thought we'd hold off a bit to keep your inboxes concise with important start-of-the-year info.
It's been a busy few days as we have worked with our students to get connected, help them understand the changes to our systems, and communicate our more rigorous expectations than they experienced this spring.
Our teachers and staff have been working hard and we know that we are ready to embrace rigorous teaching and learning at West. It won't look the same as in the past because it's not the past -- virtual learning this semester is not the same as the spring, and certainly not the same as face-to-face learning. We ask for your patience and grace as classes start and formal learning begins.
Thank you for supporting your students in their virtual learning experience - the West community is a strong one, and we look forward to the rest of the quarter.
Karen Boran, Ed. D.
