The first two weeks that the Alpena Public School District started their hybrid schedule, students had been enjoying the two days face-to-face and three days on remote work. Lately, however, both students and teachers have been noticing the decline in the amount of work being turned in due to students falling behind with the workload. With having six classes a day and technically being in school five days a week, some students feel overwhelmed with keeping up on their work.
Alpena students receive up to three hours of work on each remote day; however, most students are finding that they are spending more than three hours on their schoolwork. The solution to this problem has already been suggested to multiple students: email their teachers about the work and record how much time they are spending on their workload, as well as regularly checking their grades on Synergy. This should help students take control of their academics and keep up with their work.
