BCSC Statement re: Reopening of School


BCSC Statement re: Reopening of School

Thursday, June 11, 2020           

After concluding an unusual last quarter of the 2019-2020 school year, BCSC is focused on the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. As we work toward specific plans for reopening school, we do so with the following guiding principles in mind:

*Return as many students to our buildings as possible on Thursday, August 6;
*Prioritize the health and safety of all students and staff members;
*Provide high quality instruction regardless of context;
*Ensure equity of access to high quality instruction for all students; and
*Provide families and students with choices and pathways that work best for individual learning needs.

Currently, we are reviewing the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Governor’s Office, Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH), and the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) to discern between recommendations and requirements AND consulting locally with officials at the Bartholomew County Health Department.

As we explore various instructional delivery options that address our guiding principles, we are in need of information from our families. If you are a parent or guardian, then please complete the survey in the link below by Friday, June 19, 2020.

After Friday, June 19, 2020, we will review the data provided, analyze the current circumstances at both the local and state level, and publicly provide more specific information regarding reopening on or about Monday, July 6. (The final phase of reopening for the State of Indiana is scheduled for Saturday, July 4.)
