Re-Opening Plan, Health and Safety Plan, Continuity of Learning Plan, Crisis Pandemic Response Plan, and Family Program Commitment Forms

 

The following information concerns our NYS Education Department required Reopening Plan and Continuity of Learning Plan - including our Regular Education Program and the alternative Virtual Program option.

Board of Education Continuity of Learning Plan Presentation - Abridged Slide Presentation

This document is intended to provide information to families to inform the decision to enroll their child in either the Regular Program or the alternative Virtual Program option.

In summary: 

Students in the Regular Program may transition between being fully in school every day (in-person), alternating days (hybrid), or fully at home (remote) - at different times during the year, as directed by state and local government.

Students in the alternative Virtual Program option will only participate in learning from home - regardless of state and local directives. (Note: These students may still participate in clubs, sports, and BOCES CTE, however families would have to provide transportation and complete daily screening protocols, and students would have to wear masks as required). This program will run for at least the first half of the school year. 

Families are asked to select one of these options using the “Family Program Commitment Form” links further below. Students will be scheduled in the Regular Program by default. Families may switch programs at ten-week intervals. 

Family Question & Answer Sessions

NWCSD will host four Question & Answer sessions for families concerning the Re-Opening and Continuity of Learning Plans. They will be virtual zoom sessions, where panelists will answer typed questions by attendees. The dates, times, and links follow:
