Trinity-Byrnes gets positive feedback on ‘Distance Learning’ program
In compliance with the directives of Gov. Henry McMaster, Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School in Darlington County closed and transitioned to Distance Learning March 6.
Trinity-Byrnes students have not missed any classes since Distance Learning began, but have continued to follow their daily class schedule without interruption.
Parents have been pleased with Distance Learning at Trinity-Byrnes, the school says.
A parent of a 7th-grader said: “Everyone has done an amazing job at Trinity.
“The school was well prepared and the communication with the parents has been wonderful. It was such a smooth transition!
“We cannot thank everyone enough for all of their hard work.”
A grandparent of an 8th-grader praised the school: “I want to say how grateful I am for all of the work that all of the staff at TBCS has done in order for the kids to continue their school work. I know that there has been great effort to get this accomplished.”
Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School began preparation for remote teaching and learning (Distance Learning) through virtual classrooms soon after the coronavirus outbreak in February.
Once it became apparent that the coronavirus would likely affect South Carolina, an action plan that utilized remote teaching and distant learning was put in place.
“We have been continuing all courses and classes including lectures, notes, homework, quizzes and tests. Students are able to view either livestreamed or recorded class lectures as well as submit assignments electronically through Google Classroom,” says one school official.
Parents and families have been in regular communication with the school since Distance Learning began, including registering for 2020-21 classes, submitting surveys on the Distance Learning transition, and attending a Chapel program that was livestreamed via Facebook.
