A Distance Learning Conversation with Dalton Public Schools

Among survey findings from the PAGE COVID-19 Educator Impact Survey, four districts were identified by their educators as doing a particularly good job with the transition to distance learning. Not surprisingly, three were metro Atlanta districts known for their ongoing work with digital learning resources. The other district was Dalton Public schools – an independent city school system with about 8,000 students in northwest Georgia. In this podcast, PAGE speaks with Dalton educators about what set them up for success to deal with the rapid change to distance learning, and also spotlights the experiences of two Dalton teachers during this unprecedented national health crisis. The conversation echoes large-scale survey themes which were discussed in Episode 1 of the PAGE Talks podcast.
