REOPENING SCHOOLS IN 2020-21 | 6/10/20
Earlier today, the Oregon Department of Education released its initial guidance for reopening schools for the 2020-21 school year. The district will incorporate that guidance into our own plans as we work toward reopening schools in the fall. Once plans are developed, the district will submit an Operational Blueprint for Reentry to the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) for approval. We will continue to provide updates to our families as plans are created along the way, including the opportunity for parent input.
Several key elements will guide district planning for reopening, including:
- Public Health Protocols
- Facilities and School Operations
- Response to Outbreak
- Family and Community Engagement
- Mental, Social, and Emotional Health
- Staffing and Personnel
We appreciate our community’s patience and understanding as we create a plan that is safe for all students, staff, and families that also ensures the best possible learning environment for all students.
We would also like to remind families at this early stage that the district plans to offer a comprehensive optional K12 Online Program for students and families who prefer to learn from home next school year.
