Message from ODE:
Thank you! Since the ordered school-building closure began on March 12, you have stepped up to ensure a student-centered approach to caring, teaching and learning. We applaud your efforts to challenge, prepare and empower your students for future success—especially given the unparalleled challenges that accompany a pandemic.
The purpose of this letter is to share a coordinated and collaborative process currently underway for co-designing and framing the various considerations for a successful start to the 2020-2021 school year. The process will result in the launch of an Education Reset and Restart Planning Guide. This tool is intended to spur local-level, partnership-based discussions and decision-making in areas critical to the start of the 2020-2021 school year.
