Welcome to PSRC Remote Learning
We are excited to announce Public Schools of Robeson County Remote Learning opportunities to allow students to continue learning beyond the walls of the classroom. The Public Schools of Robeson County plan for Remote Learning days were developed to provide students with assignments for lost instructional time due to school closures. All materials will extend learning opportunities previously taught by classroom teachers. These review materials will help to deepen your child's understanding and prepare them for their future.
This plan allows students to complete standards-based assignments from home while school is not in session. While we cannot replace the value of the teacher student interaction in the classroom, we are working to provide resources and activities that will help students remain engaged in learning while schools are closed.
Students are expected to complete and submit assignments daily via virtual classrooms or upon their return to school. Teachers will be available via email during established office hours on Remote Learning days to respond to questions, provide feedback, and clarification regarding assignments.
Information regarding Remote Learning will continue to be updated and made available on this website.
