Editor’s Note: Jeffrey C. Riley, Massachusetts Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education, provides updates on how to educate students while keeping them safe from and free of the COVID – 19 virus. Superintendent Everett V. Olsen said the commissioner has presented three choices for the 2020-21 school year: return all students to school sometime this fall; return half of the students to school for the first part of the week, and the second group at the end of the week; or keep students learning at home. Below, Courtney Moran, director of the School Department’s pupil services, describes what will happen under a remote or hybrid model


“If we go to a remote hybrid model or a remote model, we’re still going to try our best to bring students in for in person services, regardless of whether that’s the hybrid or the remote. If we are truly back in school following the safety guidelines parents can anticipate that we are following that IEP (individual education plan) to a tee that students are going to their small group settings the same provisions that are looking in terms of spacing will also be provided within those small groups.”
