• SAU 34 Re-Entry Planning Structure

    Planning for the 2020-2021 school year is an extraordinarily complex endeavor.  The District Leadership Team has designed a structure for the re-entry planning process.

    The District Leadership Team composed of SAU and Building Administration, the Facilities, Technology, and Food Service Directors, the District Nurse, and the Grant Managers will meet weekly from this point forward.

    Three Tasks Forces are being formed to plan for the potential scenarios we will face in the fall.  Using this approach will allow each Task Force to focus in depth on their scenario.  The task force leaders will report out their work each week at the District Leadership Team Meetings.

    The principals and assistant principals are Task Force Leaders.  The three scenarios are:

    • Full Return to Campus
    • Full Remote Instruction
    • Hybrid

    It is essential that all stakeholder voices are part of that process.  To that end we are asking for staff members who want to help lead this work to apply to be part of a task force.  The posting will be available in applitrack shortly.  Task Force placement will be done to ensure a balanced and complete perspective. The time commitment will be a weekly meeting of not more than two hours and potential project work between meetings.  These meetings will continue for the foreseeable future. This work is paid at the rate defined by the collective bargaining agreements. 

    In addition to the task forces we will survey all stakeholder groups and we will also form advisory councils of stakeholder groups who are willing and available to respond to additional surveys and questionnaires as needed.

    Weekly updates of this on-going work will be published by the SAU.

    Be safe and stay well.
