To the Beaverton community,
Late Tuesday, Governor Gretchen Whitmer released the MI Safe Schools Return to Schools Roadmap, a 63 page document with comprehensive guidance to help local school districts create plans for in-person learning this fall. Additionally, Governor Whitmer announced the signing of Executive Order 2020-142 which provides guidance on developing “Preparedness Plans”.
The MI Safe Schools Return to School Roadmap offers guidelines as to the types of safety protocols that will be required or recommended at each phase. The safety protocols detailed in the Roadmap includes guidance on the use of personal protection equipment (PPE), good hygiene, cleaning/disinfecting, spacing in classrooms, screening for symptoms, athletics, and more. The Roadmap also recognizes the impact COVID-19 has
had on students’ and educators’ mental health and offers guidance on how schools can address this issue.
At the same time, Dr. Michael Rice, Michigan State Superintendent said, “Congress needs to approve additional federal aid so that children’s education is not harmed in a pandemic. This additional federal aid needs to include not simply funding to make up for lost state aid in the pandemic, but also funding to address personal
protection equipment and catch-up learning in the pandemic.”
Obviously, there’s a lot of information in the roadmap. The administrative team met yesterday morning to begin working on our three different plans. Also, the local superintendents met yesterday to continue dialogue around the implementation of these plans for all districts within this region. All districts are faced with a difficult challenge, yet we are navigating unchartered waters.
At this time, we do not have all of the answers, but we are working tirelessly to finalize our plans for the return in the Fall.
