Students struggle with classes without internet access

RALEIGH COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – Parents are concerned about kids struggling to finish schoolwork without internet access.

On the Concerned Parents of Raleigh County Facebook Group, several say they aren’t sure what to do if they can’t get connected to the internet while their child is learning from home. Superintendent David Price says they are aware of concerns and try to accommodate students’ needs.

“We know there are students out there that don’t have access,” Price said. “We are definitely taking all of that into consideration, making sure that those students get every benefit of the doubt as we move forward in giving grades and finishing school.”

If your child is having trouble with their workload, be sure to contact their teacher to work out a solution.
