It has been more than four months since the Federal Government of Nigeria ordered that all schools in the country be closed down to curb the spread of the global Corona virus pandemic. Little wonder the news of schools reopening is a great one for school owners, teachers, parents and their wards.
The opportunity is now open for the school session to close properly. Granted, most parents and guardians still live in fear of the pandemic, and rightly so. We have put together five sure ways to get a 100% return rate for this period despite the fears.
Communicate your Safety Procedures:
One of the ways to ease the fears of parents and their wards as they come back to school is to clearly intimate them of all you have done to ensure safety within the school premises. This might range from sanitizing stations, hand wash stations, to social distancing rules, amongst others.
Reiterate your In-person Revision Plan:
Being away from school for so long has its demerits. Among other things, students must have forgotten some of the things they were taught. You definitely have a revision plan in place for them. Reiterate this to the parents and their wards.
Utilize Online Tool(s) for Revision:
There are many online tools available for use as assessment. You can use one of these tools for revision purposes with your returning students. Some of these tools include: Formative, Coggle, Naiku, Quizalize or even Google Forms.
Actively Collect Feedback From Parents:
The importance of parents feedback during this period cannot be overemphasized. You want to be updated on the students’ progress and general well-being as the session lasts.
Offer Some Discounts:
Yes, we have all been affected financially during the pandemic. Why not, as a show of goodwill, offer some discounts for parents as the school reopens. This builds trust and shows you are considerate of them during these difficult times.
