The Craven County School District is planning to present a new, elective path for students to go to school. Craven Live is a virtual school program that the area authorities say has been in progress for over a year.

Craven Live is a mix of face to face collaboration and online exercises to make a mixed encounter for students — students like Andrew Gilgo.

“People have the chance to still do their work and not get behind and still understand all their lessons,” says Gilgo, an eighth-grade student at H.J. MacDonald Middle School in New Bern.

Gilgo says he trusts Craven Live will be useful because when students can’t physically be at school, they will at present have all the resources they need and remain on top of work.

“If you want to be there to listen to them, you can’t redo that,” he says, “and especially if you’re going into high school – that’s going to be important.”

Superintendent Dr. Meghan Doyle says students will get instruction through a gadget and see their teacher in real-time from remote locations. They will likewise have face-to-face meetings where they can learn in and around the community. She says the objective is to give local, mixed, personalized instruction in a more adaptable route for students who may have constant lifestyle shifts — including children from military families.

“Our military-connected students are students that have to make a lot of change every single year in their educational career,” she reveals. “When those changes happen, there are gaps that develop in their instruction. This is going to give those students an option to receive instruction even when they’re not physically in our community.”

She additionally says about 100 rising ninth-grade students will participate in the program this upcoming school year. This is the first time the district is actualizing the program, and authorities state they intend to extend it every year by grade level.
