Building a Connected Community
Our Connected Community is a dedicated and well-directed effort that brings our entire educational community together to support each other and our mission.
The Connected Community is an ecosystem of advisory committees, social media groups, professional development opportunities, cross-team collaborations and more, all working together to set up our teachers for success while working towards our mission of increasing educational equity through synchronous virtual instruction.
Providing Inhouse Technology Support
Technology is responsible for some amazing advances in the education space—that said, we know it isn’t perfect.
Our inhouse solutions team—staffed by technology experts who have taught for Proximity Learning in the past—is ready to help you at a moment’s notice. This way, you can focus on being a great teacher instead of being your own IT department.
Offering Regular Office Hours
Office hours are live sessions hosted by department chairs, teaching & learning specialists, and other experts that encourage connection. Office hours provide opportunities for PLI educators from across the country to meet one another, ask questions, and share exciting teaching innovations.
Encouraging Team Collaboration
We use an official Proximity Learning Facebook group for teachers to hold group discussions, share pictures, give updates, and more.
If you're not a social media person, we also utilize Google Chat to correspond and collaborate with each other.
Assigning Department Chairs
Our classrooms emulate the best parts of the brick-and-mortar teaching experience, but we don’t stop there—so do our team structures.
Proximity Learning has Department Chairs for each core subject—Math, Science, ELA, Social Studies, and World Language—that hold regular office hours for teachers to ask questions about curriculum, technology, and other resources.
