School Board gets update on Reset/ Restart Task Force, contingency planning
June 30, 2020

The Reset and Restart Task Force Team has continued planning for the start of the school year as well as contingency planning to be prepared if conditions change throughout the year.  The Assistant Superintendent, Tim Zieroff gave an update to the Board of Education on June 29th.  The update included components for the Red, Yellow, and Green plans as well as information about the Sylvania Alternative Learning Academy. 

Guiding Principles: Consistency, Accountability, Flexibility, and Communication
While refining the plans that include remote learning, we are keeping accountability, consistency, flexibility, and communication at the forefront. The task force team of administrators and teachers are focusing on increased expectations of our students and staff in the areas of grading, engagement, communication, technology, and daily schedules.
Stoplight System:  District & Building color-code system to signal any shift in the learning environment.

  • GREEN - Full on-campus school

  • YELLOW - Hybrid on-campus & remote-learning

  • RED - Full remote-learning during a period when the buildings are not available for on-campus classes

Sylvania Alternative Learning Academy 
Our district recognizes the value, importance, and best practices of face to face teacher to student instruction. However, we understand and appreciate that the current COVID-19 crisis may prompt some students and families to choose an alternative educational system for the 20-21 school year. 
The Sylvania Alternative Learning Academy for the 20-21 school year will serve as a non-traditional instructional option for students and families grades K-12 who choose 100% remote learning. Specific details and enrollment information will be communicated next week.
Reopening our buildings for students
It is necessary for the Toledo Lucas County Health Department to review and approve reopening plans. Our administration has initiated this process. Once the plans have been approved, we will communicate the specific protocols that will be in place as school begins in August. Our district is planning for many scenarios as we know that the COVID-19 situation continues to be fluid in Ohio. We expect to hear Governor DeWine outline guidelines for schools in the coming days. We will review Governor DeWine’s guidance and make any necessary adjustments to our plans.
Our goal remains the same; our goal for 2020-2021 is to begin the school year on time with our students attending daily classes in person.
