Thanks to all of you who joined for our October meeting - we had a mix of new and familiar faces.
Here’s a PDF of slides from the meeting (links are still clickable)
In case you missed it:
We reviewed our big picture basics on school reopening (the October date for the youngest learners to return to in-person is quickly approaching), criteria and metrics that CPS is posting on their website (see slides) and the conversation from the previous night’s School Committee meeting.
We had a great Q&A session about remote schooling with input and answers from school-based staff in four schools - Mariel Santos Dugan (Guidance Counselor at Amigos) Julia Ho (School Partnerships at RAUC) Dami Oluwole, Youth Connector at CSUS and Ted Hirsch from CCSC. We talked about what attendance looks like, struggles or strategies for video on/video off engagement and what homework looks like, among other things.
