3Point has gone virtual to reach our students during the COVID-19 school closure!
On Friday, March 13th, the Mayor of Boston announced the closure of the Boston Public Schools beginning Tuesday, March 17th. After receiving the news, our senior team and staff began virtual meetings to plan, prepare, and move 3Point online. Our senior team and staff approached the project with optimism and sharing a common goal to connect with and support our students.
With the enthusiastic support of the schools we serve, we signed up nearly 100 of our students to participate in our online program. After one week of preparation, we officially launched an online program on March 24th for all of our schools. Each week, our team hosts 15 live, one-hour sessions on Zoom, and share videos and other educational content on BAND where our students can leave written comments and chat. As our programing continues, more of our students are signing up and participating.
Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker announced on April 21st that all public and private schools will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic school year – and that students will finish the year through remote learning. 3Point will continue to provide our online program for students through the end of June. Our objectives are to stay connected with our students, show we care, and continue to promote critical thinking, communication, social-emotional learning, and the 3Point core values.
We thank the students, parents, school administrators, and our committed staff for their dedication and support. They have all shown commitment, perseverance, determination, growth, and strong character this year. The rest of this page is dedicated to highlighting the academic and athletic work our students are completing in our online program.
