BOARD OF EDUCATION GOALS: Superintendent John Cox reviewed the following Board of Education Goals with the Board:
A. Positive Culture/Pride in School/Athletic Pride/Unify Staff
B. Effective Leadership in all buildings
C. Success for every student
These goals will be compiled into a more complete document with explanation for the August 10 board of education meeting. The board felt that the goals were a great start and are looking forward to seeing the completed document.
REOPENING SCHOOL: The District Leadership Team members were in attendance to give input on this item. Administration and the District Leadership Team have developed a draft document that outlines policies and procedures. This document was reviewed and discussed extensively and noted that this document is ever changing. Pre-K thru 12th grade students and all staff will be required to wear masks on the buses and in the buildings. This follows order 20-59 that the governor has in place. This order will expire September 15 and at that time the administration will re-evaluate procedures. Remote learning will take place if the county is placed in high risk. If the county is placed in moderate risk, then students will be doing hybrid learning which will be a combination of both in person and remote. If the county is placed in low risk, then the student will have the option to do remote learning or in person learning. If a student is doing remote learning, then curriculum will remain the same as it will be for in person learning. KSHSAA activities will continue as previously published.
A motion to mandate that participants of all extra-curricular activities be required to be attending in person for learning failed.
The Board approved that students not attending in person classes will not be allowed to attend in person extra-curricular activities.
The Board set August 26, 2020 as the first day of school and to release the full calendar after the August 10, 2020 Board of Education meeting.
The board re-iterated that the current plan is changing daily, but that the district maintains keeping students safe is a top priority.
ADJOURNMENT: Meeting adjourned at 9:30 a.m.
