School Opening Plan

BPS GUIDING PRINCIPLES FOR OPENING SCHOOL :

  • Opening plan should reflect the safety recommendations by the MA Department of Public Health for both students and staff.
  • Social-emotional & physical wellness of students and staff takes precedence over academics
  • Remote/on-line learning cannot replicate students’ experiences in their school communities with their teachers, administrators, peers, and support staff.   
  • The more independent the learner, the lower the negative impact of remote learning.
  • Students who require specialized supports to reenter school will have a different reentry to meet their needs.
  • The district will prepare to seamlessly move between in-person instruction and remote instruction, if the school buildings are closed again.
  • Transportation will not be guaranteed as prior to the Pandemic.
  • Collaboration between grade levels and subject areas within and across schools will be prioritized for consistency and coherence.
  • Special subject areas - art, music, physical education, library, and computer science will continue to be an important component of learning.
  • Every opportunity will be made to have instruction happen outside.
  • We are committed to providing technology for all students that can be accessed at home and at school and will expand our 1:1 learning program for home use.
  • Student privacy will be considered in all applications used for remote learning.
