(BLOOMINGTON) – The Monroe County Community School Corporation has created a Reentry and Recovery Committee consisting of 30 plus community members that are meeting weekly through the end June.
Members include administrators, principals, teachers, parents, and students from MCCSC, IU Health administrators, doctors/pediatricians, Indiana University officials, members from Monroe County Health Department, and several others throughout the community.
The Reentry and Recovery Committee’s goal is to provide considerations that will inform the development of a robust and flexible re-entry and recovery plan that effectively address:
- How to reopen schools under a variety of possible conditions
- How to keep students, staff, and families safe
- How to prepare for sudden and/or continuous closures
- How to create an equitable learning environment for all students.
The committee has created at least 9 different potential scenarios for this coming fall however, everything is being looked at. MCCSC is continuing to work very closely with the Center of Disease Control and the Indiana Department of Education. As they receive updates the committee will use that information as part of their plans.
The committee also breaks out into workgroups to discuss options and inputs.
Work Groups include:
- Health & Safety of Students, Staff, and Families
- Instructional Programming/School Schedule
- Equity & Access for Marginalized Populations
- Mental Health & Social Emotional Learning
- Transportation; Food Services/Meals
- Facilities, Logistics, Operations; and Technology.
The committee will continue to do their best in updating the community on the information they receive.
