Massena Central names re-opening committee to plan for 2020-21 school scenarios
MASSENA -- Massena Central Reopening School Committee is now meeting and planning for a possible return of students to campus in the fall.
Superintendent Pat Brady said they are looking at three possible scenarios for the 2020-21 school year: in-person classes with new safety requirements, hybrid in-person/online learning and continued remote learning.In his July board update, Brady said he has broken the group down into five subcommittees “to examine various aspects that will need to be considered for school reopening such as health and safety, scheduling, transportation, food service etc.”
The five subcommittees are led by administration and will include staff, parents and students.
“Since we do not yet have official guidelines from the state, the committees will use guidance from other states and the American Academy of Pediatrics among others for this preliminary planning,” Brady wrote in his update.
The subcommittees are:
• Health & Safety, co-chaired by Head Nurse AnneMarie Miller and Director of Facilities Greg Tessier
• Teaching & Learning (pre-K through grade 6), chaired by Jefferson Elementary Principal Duane Richards
• Teaching & Learning (grades seven through 12), chaired by Junior High Principal Alan Oliver
• Social Emotional Learning/Mental Health, chaired by Community Schools Director Kirstin Colarusso-Martin
• Transportation/Food Service/Athletics, co-chaired by Director of Transportation Allen Rowledge and Food Service Director Peter Bertrand
