FALL 2020 REOPENING INFORMATION
Given the possibility that communities may experience spikes in COVID-19 cases at any point during the school year, which may prompt short or long-term school closures, our district has developed hybrid/blended learning model and schedule that can continue as is in a fully remote environment.
Instruction will not only focus on “core” subject areas to the exclusion of elective courses. Consideration has been given to prioritizing hands-on and lab-based activities while students are onsite in school buildings. All instruction will continue to be aligned to the New York State Next Generation Learning Standards.
Remote learning opportunities for students will include a greater emphasis on asynchronous instruction. To ensure high-quality remote learning experiences, we will standardize the use of Google Classroom and Google meet learning platforms, to the extent possible. Grading practices will follow a standards-based framework designed to provide direct feedback regarding students’ mastery of course content.
