  1. Please list efforts you have made to engage your community (public health information sharing, taking feedback on planning, etc.) in preparing for school in 2020-21. Include information on engagement with communities often underserved and marginalized and those communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.

We have sent out two surveys to families and received 55 completed surveys out of 130 families.  We also surveyed teachers.  Additionally, all teachers spend two half days considering equity and the impacts of any plans on our most vulnerable students.  We identified the following as considerations related to students being able to access learning:  

  • Students in IEPs
  • Working parents
  • Food/housing insecurity
  • Mental health concerns of parents and students
  • Time of the day that support and lessons were offered
  • Split houses--students going back and forth between houses
  • Technology capabilities
  • Access to books and other items (order materials)
  • Age of kids--very young kids

As of Feb. 1st 2021, we have sent out two additional survey seeking input from all families.  Over 90% of our families participated in these surveys.  I have reached out to 12 of our families who expressed struggles with distance learning and held two focus group meetings to seek input for planning.  

We know that for these students the continuity of educational services is critical in helping them continue to learn and grow.  School is the primary place where learning occurs.  We will be creating time at school during these student’s “off” days to help them accelerate learning in reading, writing and math.

  • Reconfigure each room so there is an individual desk for each child in the room.  The floor will be marked in 36ft2 areas so students understand and can visualize necessary distancing.

Classrooms in the main building (K-2)

  • These classrooms are 970 ft2 and can support up to 25 learners with revised guidelines of 3 foot social distancing.  Our cohort groups will be up to 22 students

Portable classrooms (3-8)

  • These classrooms are 640 ft2 and can support up to 25 learners with revised guidelines of 3 foot social distancing.  We will begin the school year with two cohorts of up to 22 students.  

K-3 and 4-8 will be supported by 2 Instructional Assistants (IAs), both to provide instructional support and in order to support/encourage physical distancing.

 Additional Considerations: Special education services will be planned and provided by the Director of Student Services  in collaboration with parents and teachers. Most SDI will be provided in co-taught lessons with special education and general education staff. Review itinerant staff services to maintain physical distancing. If physical distancing cannot be maintained with direct services, the IEP team will convene to determine appropriate next steps.

Itinerant Speech/Language Pathologist: one space in STEAM room designated for speech and language cohort groups.  SLP provided faceshield.

Elective courses:

Art will be provided for students grade K-5 weekly.  The art teacher will join students in the classroom once a week.  The art teacher will work with 3 classes per school day.

""

  2. Facilities and School Operations

Some activities and areas will have a higher risk for spread (e.g., band, choir, science labs, locker rooms). When engaging in these activities within the school setting, schools will need to consider additional physical distancing or conduct the activities outside (where feasible). Additionally, schools should consider sharing explicit risk statements for instructional and extra-curricular activities requiring additional considerations (see section 5f of the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance).
