NSCSD Using State Guidelines to Form Re-Entry PlanAfter receiving the New York State Education Department's July 13 guidance entitled "Recovering, Rebuilding and Renewing: the Spirit of New York’s Schools Reopening Guide," the North Syracuse Central School District (NSCSD) is working to adopt the model and create its own Re-Entry Plan.
The NSCSD formed a Re-Entry Committee in May to explore options for the safe reopening of schools. Additionally, the District has been working with a regional group of school districts through OCM BOCES to share information and best practices. Based on the committee's recommendations and the regional group's work, in accordance with the new state guidelines, the NSCSD expects to be able to submit an initial plan to New York State by the July 31 deadline.
North Syracuse Central School District Superintendent of Schools Daniel D. Bowles said that the District will also be surveying its stakeholders. "In order to come up with a plan that considers our community’s needs, we must have as much input as possible. We are finalizing our survey questions and we will be putting the survey link out to the public as soon as possible," Bowles said.
"I encourage our families to take the survey right away as we will have a tight time frame for analyzing feedback," he added.
July 17, 2020 - The District released their survey for families.
