Page 18 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2021 SCHOOL | FROM PAGE 1 The move to hybrid learning was initially slated for November 2020. However, at the time the rising number of COVID-19 cases kept the district in the remote learning model. Tahiliani said that at this point, the transition to hybrid learning cannot come soon enough. “We are seeing the first signs of the limits of remote learning as it relates to student achievement,” she said. This was made evident in the recent results from the iReady math and reading assessments. Tahiliani said 30 percent of students in grades K-8 are at least two grade levels below where they should be in math compared to 22 percent last year. In reading, 36 percent of those students are behind by at least two grade levels compared to 32 percent last year. The test results for Everett High School are still being evaluated. Remote learning has also continued to take its toll on students’ social and emotional well-being. Tahiliani said the CDC recently reported that the number of emergency room visits for mental health issues in children ages five to 11 went up by 24 percent during the past year. That number has climbed by 31 percent for children ages 12-17. However, Tahiliani also had some good news to share, saying the city’s COVID-19 positivity rate had dropped to 6.1 percent as of February 11. She said that of the 111 communities in the red category, Everett has the 39th highest daily incidence rate. In prior weeks, the city always had one of the top 15 incidence rates in the state. “The curve is showing signs of flattening; the drop-off is very noticeable and dramatic,” said Tahiliani. “This is a huge improvement – we are very encouraged.” REAL ESTATE TRANSAC TIONS Copyrighted material previously published in Banker & Tradesman/The Commercial Record, a weekly trade newspaper.
