Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. TASIS Dorado has drafted a Continuity of Learning Plan, commonly known as Distance Learning. In anticipation of this scenario, our team has spent considerable effort in developing a full distance-learning concept. Our numerous digital resources allow us to remotely offer a variety of instructional experiences in order to maintain academic continuity and maintenance of skills. Fortunately, our students are already familiar with these technology tools, including those offered by Google Apps for Education, and should readily be able to engage in these activities. We have prepared training for our faculty on how to effectively approach distance learning while integrating these tools.
We are tentatively planning to reopen on Monday, March 30, but will not make a final decision until closer to that date, depending on advice from the CDC and directives from the government. As of this writing, the school will NOT be open Tuesday and Wednesday for students to collect their books and materials.
Additionally, the newly created “TASIS Dorado Distance Learning Hub” will officially launch and the link will be sent to you on Tuesday, March 17 afternoon.
