MONROE – Union County Public Schools and Union County will provide at-home educational opportunities for elementary students during the school closure.
The programming, “Learning in the U,” will air on UCTV Channel 16. Short 15-minute lessons created by UCPS elementary teachers will support the district’s remote learning plan.
The first episode of “Learning in the U,” which is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. May 4, will consist of five lessons that cover math, science, reading and spelling. “Learning in the U” will continue to air content from 8 to 10 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, as well as 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursdays, throughout the remainder of the school year.
“Learning in the U” may be particularly helpful to families with little to no internet access.
The district also provides weekly check-ins with teachers as well as optional online and print remote learning assignments to assist students with learning and reviewing new material.
