St. Paul high schoolers struggling so far in distance learning
November 16, 2020
Distance learning continues to be a challenge for St. Paul's high school students, including many who can ill afford to fall behind.
Students were failing more than one-third of high school classes at the midpoint of the first quarter that ends Friday, a district official told school board members this week.
About 400 students, most of them juniors and seniors, have been targeted to work extra hours to make up the credits they need to graduate, leading in turn to a new effort to steer them into a Saturday workshop providing what many have been missing: in-person help.
