Communication and Engagement

The district remains committed to communicating all elements of this reopening plan to students, parents and guardians, staff and visitors. The plan is available to all stakeholders via the district website and may be updated throughout the school year, as necessary, to respond to local circumstances. The link to the plan appears on the website homepage and is housed on the Reopening Updates and Information web page. Every effort has been made to ensure that the plan is accessible to all individuals in accordance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level A/AA. The plan can also be translated into other languages, via the WordPress feature available on the district website. The website can be translated in the following languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Persian, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, Urdu and Vietnamese.

As part of its planning for the reopening of schools and the new academic year, the district has developed a plan for communicating all necessary information to district staff, students, parents/guardians, visitors and education partners and vendors. The district will use its existing communication channels – including the district website and SchoolMessenger mass notifications – as well as appropriate signage and training opportunities to support the dissemination of consistent messaging regarding new protocols and procedures, expectations, requirements and options related to school operations throughout the pandemic. This information will be posted to the website, where it can be translated as needed.

The district is committed to establishing and maintaining regular channels of communication and has reviewed and determined which methods have proven to be the most effective in communications with our school community. The district will rely on SchoolMessenger mass notifications, the district website, and other means to communicate news, requirements and updates related to reopening and in-person instruction, including social distancing requirements, proper wearing of face coverings and proper hand and respiratory hygiene. The information that we will share will be based on state guidance, the Department of Health, and the Center for Disease Control.
