Teton School District No.1 logo

Parents have another chance tonight to hear an update on Teton County School District No. 1's plans for remote education.

The district's board of trustees is holding a special meeting at 5 p.m. to discuss what remote education will look like for the next two weeks. Gov. Mark Gordon's order banning gatherings in public places, including schools, will remain in effect until at least April 17, meaning parents have their children home for at least that long.

There are no action items on the agenda, so the board will likely hear an update from Superintendent Gillian Chapman but make no decisions. The meeting will be held using the WebEx platform, and a link will be posted to TCSD.org by 4 p.m.

Last week's meeting gave trustees the chance to ask Chapman questions, allowing for an expansive conversation about remote education. With 201 participants last week, attendance, though virtual, dwarfed that of a regular meeting at the district administration building.
