The WSWHE BOCES 2020-21 Reopening Plan, was developed by a team of board members, administrators, teachers, nurses, and other staff members. We have been coordinating with our 31 component school districts. Many of the Return To School Committee members are also parents of students in our component school districts and in WSWHE BOCES programs. Further, the plan incorporates guidance from state and federal groups including the New York State Department of Education Reopening Schools Taskforce, the New York State Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control.
We believe we have come up with a plan that will safely allow for students and staff to learn and teach at all levels. Adjustments may be made as needed to account for the wide variance in component district schedules and evolving health and safety requirments.
