Covid-19 adaption

During the spring semester, from March 18 to June 3, Täby Enskilda had full time ’remote education’, meaning that the students were following classes at home and the teachers taught from school. During the autumn semester, from August 24 to December 4, Täby Enskilda had ’partial remote education’, meaning that a third of the schools students were studying from home following a rolling schedule.

Since all students and staff at Täby Enskilda have their own laptop computer (provided by the school) and the IT-infrastructure of the greater Stockholm area (and in Sweden in general) is very good, remote education has had few technical challenges. Pedagogically, Täby Enskilda has managed very well during these hard times. On exam day June 3 2020, Täby Enskilda saw no negative effects on the third year students’ school leaving grades compared to earlier years. Sweden has made no changes in grading scales, policies for grading or graduation requirements during the covid-19 pandemic.
