Return to School Surveys

Although specific requirements and guidelines have not been provided to NYS school districts yet, we are in the process of developing a reopening plan for the 2020-2021 school year. Because we do not know what the school year will look like yet, we are simply preparing for different school scenarios under which we will be operating for the Fall. Some scenarios may involve remote learning.

Our planning will center around 9 areas of focus

1) Health and Safety
2) Teaching and Learning
3) Social-Emotional Needs
4) Special Education
5) Bilingual Education/Multi-Lingual Education
6) Digital Equity and Access
7) Budget and Fiscal
8) Transportation, Facilities and Nutrition
9) Staffing/Human Resources
