This project will research the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the I Promise School in Akron and the social emotional learning of the students who attend there. Data will be collected through a survey sent to I Promise School faculty and staff members. Questions asked will be about how online learning affected the teachers' connections with their students, how social emotional learning strategies where incorporated online, and what challenges are now being faced as students return to in person learning? The goal of this project is to learn about the effects of COVID-19 in the I Promise School, so that important elements of in person learning that were missed during school shutdown can be recognized. This way, current and future educators can be aware of what elements worked and did not so that students can be caught back up both socially and academically, as well as be given a sense of normalcy again.
