FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - FWCS submitted a plan starting after spring break using the PowerSchool Learning Management System, which is an online program where teachers can reach out in various ways to students and their families.
“What we’ve learned in the last two weeks is 60% of our students are able to get online and do their work, but 40% are not because they don’t have a computer. They don’t have internet access,” FWCS Spokesperson Krista Stockman said.

As schools are closed for the remainder of the school year, districts are required to provide 20 additional instructional days through remote learning.
However, they know many families can not access the program due to a lack of resources.
“For the rest of the students, we are working on creating some hard copies. We will be getting that out to families soon,” she explained.
Teachers will hold daily office hours and post assignments at least three times a week in PowerSchool.
As far as events, high school graduation is still being discussed and prom is canceled.
The last day is May 28 as originally planned.
The lunch program is not ending.
Only three of the locations closed due to a small number of families showing up compared to other locations.
That's Whitney Young Early Childhood Centers and Levan Scott Academy.
