Fall, 2021: District Priorities for Operation of Schools During the Pandemic
In a nutshell...
- Safety - Safety and mitigating risk of exposure continues to be our #1 Priority. All planning decisions are being made based on guidance from the NY State Education and Health Departments, the CDC and the Westchester County Department of Health.
- Robust Learning - The goal is to ensure that all students are engaged in a structured day of robust learning with equitable access to learning opportunities. MUFSD is prepared should the need arise to pivot to hybrid or full remote learning again. All teachers have received training and instructional tools needed to support students, assess their progress, and provide regular feedback.
- Social-Emotional Needs - Emphasis, as always, is placed on attending to students’ individual emotional needs and providing a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment for all students.
- Tech Equity for All Students - The District is committed to ensure that all students have suitable tech devices, access to high-speed internet, and ongoing technology support to enable them to participate independently and successfully in the even that remote learning from home becomes necessary.
