Learning labs avaliable for Alcona students in grades 6-12

LINCOLN, Mich. – Middle school and high school students in Alcona County can now get some face–to–face learning time even during remote learning hours. Alcona Community Schools is offering learning labs for 6th through 12th grade students. Eligible students can come to the high school and get extra help from district teachers. Staff said the learning labs were created for students to have a safe space to learn.

“We wanted students to come in and just have a place to work, access Wi-Fi,” said Alcona Middle/High School Principal Christie Thomas. “For some students in our area, accessing strong internet is a challenge and so we wanted to give them a way to access that.”

Thomas said while their remote learning platform Edgenuity has worked out its problems, 6 through 12th grade Edgenuity students are also welcome. “For some students that’s a challenge and the amount of support families are able to give are really varies because they have jobs and other students that need their help and you know a lot of other things going on so, we wanted to open it up and give another level of support,” said Thomas.
