Decision-Making Matrix for Changing School District Schedule

 

The answer is not a simple “if this happens then that will happen”.  Below is a Decision-Making Matrix that has many parts.  In some cases, only one item could cause the district to change our schedule, such as, too many teachers out and no substitutes, or no bus drivers and no substitutes, or not enough food service personnel and no substitutes.  In some cases, it may be a directive from the State or Health Department due to an outbreak and hospital capacity is impacted, but we are not tied just to a color code only.  The data that will cause our district will be items that are specific to our district rather than the Entire County or region.

 

Why we close could happen rapidly, such as not enough staff, or more slowly such as putting into effect a hybrid program that may take several days to prepare in order to set student schedules.  A change could be by a building or by the entire district.  It could be for a specific number of days or it could be longer.  What is important in changing schedules, if needed, is to keep students, teachers, and all employees safe.  Education of all students is very important to us but safety is always paramount to what we do in order to give the best education possible every day to our students.  Please review the rationale of potential changes below as to what could cause our district to change to remote or hybrid
