State Board guidelines reflect governor's stage to reopen
by Dr. Michael C. Garrett, Superintendent Joint School District #171
These guidelines would allow for school districts to open only if they can provide an effective plan of social distancing and gathering. We are continuing to investigate ideas and possibilities but with the distancing restriction will likely be unable to open the remainder of this school year.
We are, however, shifting our focus to next year as the proposed plans will likely be required for opening in the fall. We continue to build and adapt plans to meet guidelines. We also are hoping to create an educational system that could shift flawlessly from face-to-face instruction to online instruction. We have a lot of work ahead of us but are accepting of the challenge.
Our schedule for the year looks like this.
I hope this helps clear up a few of the areas you might have questions about.
