This plan was developed to conform to the guidance provided by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) in their July 2020 document entitled, "Recovering, Rebuilding, and Renewing: The Spirit of New York's Schools - Reopening Guidance." This plan will be revised and updated as needed to adjust to changing public health conditions caused by the COVID-19 virus and all of the new requirements and regulations which may emerge over time. We solicited input and involvement from the families we serve and our staff during the original drafting of our reopening plan. We will rely on continued input from all stakeholders as we move forward in implementing this plan and as we contemplate any additions or modifications.
We know our program must be flexible and as responsive as possible to meet the needs of our students, families and staff members. We will closely monitor the conditions of our community and the effectiveness and appropriateness of our plan as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. Be assured that nothing has changed our sincere commitment to our students and our determination to provide the highest possible quality of educational programming and related services during these difficult times.
The goal of the plan is to guide the delivery of high-quality educational services as safely as possible, whether that service delivery is in-person, through a remote learning platform or a blended combination or remote and in-person services. Our focus and concerns extend to the social and emotional needs of our students, families and staff members. By diligently working together and remaining focused on the outcomes we desire, we can find solutions to the many challenges ahead.
Our plan includes all of the required elements as identified by NYSED.
