Parameters of the Continuity of Education Plan:
- This plan aims to provide a realistic level of continuity of education for all students during the current COVID-19 crisis. It is not meant to replace the comprehensive instruction that exists in our brick and mortar instructional environment. All administrators, teachers, parents, and students must do their best to be flexible, reasonable, and innovative during this global health emergency.
- The District does possess the technology to provide every student a device. However, not all students in our district have access to high-speed internet. Therefore, the district’s approach in this plan is to deliver the continuity of education in both a digital and non-digital mode so students can utilize technology if available and practical but still participate equally if it is not available or practical in their household.
- The District recognizes that some of our students have Individualized Education Plans (IEPs), Section 504 Plans, or Gifted Individualized Education Plans (GIEPs). Also, a few of our students are English Learners (ELs). Many of these students require specially designed instruction (SDI), related services, specific accommodations and/or adaptations to their education in our brick and mortar setting. The District will do its best to continue this SDI, related services, and these accommodations and adaptations during this time of crisis by continuing with remote IEP/GIEP meetings, as practical and reasonable, while enlisting the services and expertise of our special education teachers and staff in the delivery of a continuity of education plan.
- This plan will not address the myriad of questions many stakeholders have regarding such things as graduation, prom, Camp Hebron, final grades, field trips etc. The District will address and respond to these circumstances as this pandemic continues to evolve.
