As we near the end of the school year, Collegiate has begun to look ahead to identify key decisions and make plans for the future. We are keeping our students top of mind as we begin to prepare for the variety of scenarios that may unfold next school year. Our plans cover, but are not limited to:
- ensuring tech and internet access for all learners
- exploring and vetting options for online learning platforms
- launching a virtual summer school
- structuring increased mental health supports for students and staff
- adapting our Specially Designed Instruction approach for serving students with disabilities
- ensuring we have distant (low tech) options for engagement for students with low incidence disabilities
- engaging English learners effectively in curriculum and language development
- maintaining and enhancing family communication and engagement
Collegiate has been engaging leaders, teachers, staff, families, and students in order to design the best possible approach for the 2020-2021 school year. Currently, we are building different task-forces to ensure that our plans for next school year enhance learning and keep our students, family and staff healthy and engaged. We’ve identified a timeline for when our families and community can expect updates throughout the summer and going into next school year. Click here for more details.
In uncertain times, we can say with certainty that Collegiate will continue to put our students first. As always, we are committed to offering equitable access to a holistic and rigorous education for every young person in our schools.
We are so grateful to our team of educators, students, families, and community members that have helped us pivot our approach since Louisiana schools closed in mid-March. We cannot wait to see what innovations 2020-2021 has in store.
