    Message from Interim Superintendent Eva J. Demyen

    FRAMEWORK FOR REOPENING

    Since the COVID-19 crisis forced us to close schools in March of 2020, we have faced unprecedented trials and tribulations.  Our school district identified the academic and social/emotional challenges that faced our students and staff and ameliorated the needs of our school community by providing support services, device acquisition and remote learning. 

     

    Mid July, the Department of Health along with the State Education Department, finally released guidance for plans to reopen schools in September.  As we face the uncertainty of what the circumstances will be when schools are scheduled to open for the 2020-2021 school year in September, the District has taken a proactive approach in developing alternative options for reopening that account for all contingencies, as well as provide flexibility to adapt to changes in real time. Plans will be submitted to the State on July 31, 2020 and will be available on the district’s website.  A PowerPoint condensed version of this plan will also be available on the homepage for the public.  This document will serve as a fluid one, as we begin to finalize plans to restart and reboot our children’s education.  Many questions may still arise as we continue the process towards September.  Please know that we will take all possible measures to ensure the health, safety, emotional well-being and academic integrity of all steps we take.

     

    OBJECTIVES FOR REOPENING

    • Safeguard the health, safety, emotional well-being and social interactions of all students and staff
    • Ensure continuity of instruction traditionally (face-to-face), remotely or a combination thereof.
    • Maintain and increase equity and access to tools and support services for all students.
    • Provide regular communication with staff, students, parents and the community.
    • Work within the 2020-21 school budget to provide the necessary equipment and services as needed to run an efficient, safe working environment

    NYS Guidance/Requirements/Overview

    NYSED applauds and thanks the thousands of teachers and administrators in New York State who continue, even in these unprecedented times, to focus on doing everything possible to ensure the health, safety, well-being, and education of their students.

    The closing of schools in March 2020 has profoundly affected the lives of New Yorkers. This impact will continue through the 2020-21 school year and beyond. While no one can predict all the challenges that may arise over the coming weeks and months, it is imperative that we plan for a safe and orderly return to school.

    Without question, our paramount concern is to ensure the health and safety of everyone in our schools, children and adults alike. At the same time, we must also contend with a myriad of complex challenges – catching up on months of lost in-person instruction; addressing students’ social and emotional needs in the wake of this catastrophe; ensuring all students have the ability to participate equitably in remote learning; planning for the possibility of deep budget cuts; and so many others.

    The Board of Regents and Department's task was to create a framework to help guide schools and school districts as they continue to plan for school to return in the fall, whether instruction takes place in person, remotely, or through some combination of the two. That framework is presented here, in this guidance document.

     The guidance provides schools and districts with the flexibility they will need to develop and implement creative solutions to their unique, local circumstances. It describes the reopening actions that schools must take and those that are recommended best practices to be considered.
