Report on the 2019-2020 academic year of Scolarship Recipients (English Translation)

Introduction

This academic year 2019 - 2020 was a year when everyone and everything was chaotically turned upside down, either by the political crisis, and then by the pandemic commonly known as "Covid-19". From the opening of classes on September 09, 2020, anti-partisans of the local power brokers began to demonstrate against the high cost of living and for the resignation of the President of the Republic of Haiti in order to prevent the country from functioning. After the third week of class , all activities were paralyzed, because of "Pays-lock" ( a Country Lockdown). Despite this two adults did three (3) weeks of class during the month of September 2020. We waited timidly until the end of November 2020 for the reopening of classes. At the beginning of December 2020, all activities resumed normally until the [COVID] lockdown date of March 19, 2020 when all activities were closed until further notice.

As of April 2020, some schools took the initiative to provide online lessons mainly through the WhatsApp application. Two adults attended those. A helper had to leave his job to read the notes for them on a tape recorder so that they could study and do their homework. However, they weren't really able to adapt at first for lack of practice and experience on braille machines to type easily. It was then difficult to understand and master their lessons.

 After the period of confinement, they underwent the 2nd exam of the year from July 27 - 31, 2020. Then the resumption of classes took place from August 10 to September 18, 2020. To complete the academic year 2019 – 2020, the final exam took place from September 21 to 25, 2020.  We waited for the school report to be given to them so that we could start the new academic year 2020 – 2021 which was to start October 19, 2020. Unfortunately, they were not promoted to the next class for lack of rigor and commitment. So they must redo the class. As for a third adult, he underwent two (2) exams, one before the containment of Covid-19 and the other at the end of September 2020 which was the final exam to complete the academic year 2019 – 2020. We had to wait until October 8, 2020 to receive the school report. Fortunately, he obtained favorable results as he made a commitment to work with rigor. Hence, he was promoted to NSII.

Comments or Suggestions

Adult #1

She has an obligation to redo the class. She has shortcomings, lack of rigor and difficulty in applying and assimilating the courses. We have to put a traveling teacher to work and revise the lessons with her.

Adult #2

He has the obligation to redo the class. He has shortcomings, lack of rigor and difficulty in applying and assimilating the courses. We need a traveling teacher to work and revise lessons with him.

Adult #3

He is intelligent and his efforts are satisfactory. He takes on his sense of responsibility.c.  He started the new year in upper class, “Secondary II” since October 12, 2020.

Compte rendu sur l’année académique 2019-2020 des Adults (En Francais)

Introduction

Cette année académique 2019 – 2020, c’était une année où tout le monde et toutes les choses ont été chaotiquement bouleversées, soit par la crise politique, et ensuite par la pandémie communément appelée « Covid-19 ».  Dès l’ouverture des classes le 09 septembre 2020, des anti-partisans du pouvoir en place a commencé à manifester contre la vie chère et la démission du Président de la République d’Haïti pour empêcher fonctionner le pays, après la troisième semaine de classe, toutes les activités ont paralysé, donc cela allait provoquer « Pays Clock ». Malgré cela qu’ils ont fait trois (3) semaines de classe au cours du mois septembre 2020.

On allait attendre jusqu’à la fin du mois de novembre 2020 pour la réouverture de classes mais timidement. Au commencement du mois de décembre 2020, toutes les activités ont recommencé normalement pour arriver à la date du confinement, le 19 mars 2020 où toutes les activités ont fermé jusqu’à la nouvelle l’ordre.

A partie du mois d’avril 2020, quelques écoles ont pris l’initiative de dispenser les cours onlines surtout grâce l’application WhatsApp ; parmi eux celle des deuz adultes. Un guide etait obligé de laisser son boulot pour faire la lecture des notes pour eux sur son magnétophone afin qu’ils puissent étudier et faire leurs devoirs, cependant, ils n’ont pas été vraiment capable de s’adapter d’abord par manque de pratique et d’expérience sur les machines brailles pour taper aisément, ensuite du mal à appréhender et maitriser les cours. 

Après la période du déconfinement, ils ont subi le 2e examen de l’année, du 27 - 31 juillet 2020, puis la reprise des classes s’est fait du 10 Août au 18 Septembre 2020 ; pour boucler l’année académiques 2019 – 2020 et enfin l’examen final a déroulé dès le 21 au 25 Septembre 2020 en attendant qu’on aura leur donné le bulletin scolaire pour qu’on puisse commencer la nouvelle année académique 2020 – 2021 s’étant fait le 19 octobre 2020 dernier. Malheureusement, ils ne sont été promus en classe supérieure par manque de rigueur et d’engagement. Donc, ils refont la classe.

Quant à le toisieme adult, il a subi deux (2) examens, l’un avant le confinement du Covid-19 et l’autre à la fin du mois de septembre 2020 pour faire l’examen final et boucler l’année académique 2019 – 2020, il fallait attendre le 8 octobre 2020 pour prendre le bulletin scolaire. Heureusement, il a obtenu des résultats favorables, donc il a pris son engagement pour travailler avec rigueur. D’où, il est promu en NSII.
