The district's goal for the school year is to provide all students, staff and families a meaningful learning experience in a safe environment. As we navigate the school year together, all plans will be developed in collaboration with multiple stakeholders, including state and local public health agencies; district and school staff; students; families and community members. 

Superintendent Gdowski will continue to use the following three key priorities in any decision-making related to operations for the 2020-2021 school year: 1. Safety, 2. Family Needs, 3. Efficiency (i.e. greater predictability and a consistent learning model).

Over the course of the school year, this web section will serve as a resource for information and engagement as we move ahead together in creating and implementing learning plans for the 2020-2021 school year.
