DISTANCE LEARNING OFFICIALLY BEGINS APRIL 20, 2020.
Asynchronous and Synchronous Distance Learning Models: There will be two possible ways of distance learning, Asynchronous and Synchronous, while schools remain closed.

b. Synchronous, means happening at the same time; teachers will be available for students to reach out by email, a Learning Management System, or other communication means. Students and teachers are on the same platform at the same time.
