As we come to the start of May, I wanted to share with you the accountability procedures that will be in place for students in grades 7-12 for the rest of the 2019-20 school year. This will determine how course credit is awarded.
These accountability procedures were developed with the well-being of our students in mind. They reflect the unprecedented situation the COVID-19 crisis has created but are also designed to preserve the integrity of an academic program our staff and students have invested so much in.
Our schools remain closed through May 15th. There is no blueprint for our current situation except to do the best we can and support one another. As I think about this, I am compelled to start with our team’s core belief of building and maintaining supportive relationships for all within our learning community. I recognize that not only did our educational world get flipped upside down, but your family’s world as well. I empathize that for many of you, you are not only a parent/guardian, but also an employee/employer, spouse/partner, a daughter/son, etc. Given this, our instructional plan is evolving to support our students with an important focus on getting used to a “new normal” for this period of time.
