With the goal of reopening safely for in-person instruction during COVID-19, NSSED has created a phased-in approach for NSSED-managed sites for school for the 2020-2021 year. For NSSED classrooms hosted by member districts, we will work collaboratively with those host districts to align to their plan to the greatest extent possible.
Our year begins with remote learning, while monitoring state and local metrics to decide whether or not it is safe to be able to move toward a blend/hybrid of remote and in-person learning. Subsequently, after a blend/hybrid time period, it is our hope to return to a fully in-person model by early fall.
Like every school district across the country, our plan will continue to be updated given new local and state information, as well as our experiences with newly established processes and procedures being created in real time. We know this could be frustrating, but please understand our faithful effort to educate, while maintaining everyone’s health and safety. We must all work together, have mutual understanding and patience, and support one another.
