School Re-Opening Plan Timeline
By July 31, 2020: Each school district must submit to the Department the three plans required. These plans should be presented to the school committee so they can share them with the community.
August 4, 2020: BBRSD Regional Transition School Committee Meeting. The three plans will be presented.
By August 14, 2020: Each school district has to submit the plan chosen for implementation to the Department. Since the plan will require amendments to an existing policy as well as budget revisions/reallocations, this plan should be approved/endorsed by the school committee prior to its submission to the Department.
Between August 10, 2020, and the start of the school year (which may be delayed by up to 10 days to permit professional development and preparation based on the most recent announcements from DESE), the school committee may have to negotiate certain parts of the plan with the appropriate unions within their district. Every effort should be made to expedite these negotiations to ensure a timely opening of schools.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has been difficult for many. BBRSD is committed to helping families in our communities find resources to help feed their families.
