What Does the Task Force Do?
Due to the nature of the Covid-19 pandemic, the landscape for our school district is changing from day to day. The district will be preparing a learning plan for the fall that is flexible given the changing facts, adheres to the guidelines of the state and county health departments, and prioritizes the safety and learning outcomes of all of our students. There are myriad ways to structure learning to meet these goals.
MVSD Transition Task Force purpose:
- To contribute to focused conversations related to the impact on our students, teachers, staff, family and community for district leadership and staff to make fully informed decisions that incorporate the perspectives of the full community;
