CIBOLA COUNTY, N.M. - Students are now finishing up the spring semester online because of school cancelations. The main program that Grants High School teachers are using is Google Classroom. Some teachers already had this in place and were able to adjust more easily but those who did not had to quickly learn the many particulars of the program. Other teachers are simply providing instruction through school emails. This difficult transition happened very quickly which left very little time to get everything in place. The process of online schooling does not make it any easier because it brings many challenges of its own.
