We are a Private Provider. Please Clarify, as we still have school districts telling us we need to amend or change upcoming IEP's to only reflect remote learning and not student needs. Can you make sure this information is sent to school districts Special Ed Departments?

We have had families moving into the district in the last 2 weeks. Any guidance on how to manage learning for new students in a remote learning environment?

I have a number of parents asking that when staff reach out to households, they call the students cell phone directly instead a parents phone. Do you have an opinion on this in relation to policies and code of ethics?

I would continue to respectfully request that the waiver for assessments be submitted and deal with vendors later. Our educators and parents would appreciate this knowledge and support.

Completely agree with Lisa With!

If and when we extend the closure beyond April 3, could we consider offering a 4 day student week with planning days for staff each 5 th day ( Friday?). Families have reported they need the information/ remote learning lessons in smaller chunks and down time for families would be helpful.
Corinne Cascadden
48:37
Agree, get waiver for assessments ASAP
billlupini

Sorry, Lisa Witt!

Any Superintendent's looking to have students and teachers work through April vacation and get out one week earlier?

Due to Vermont's stay home order, does the NHDOE have recommendations on staff (therapy providers, IT staff, etc.) that are Vermont residents who work in NH.

If remote learning goes all semester, in the spirit of competency based ed, and taking into account the stress levels of parents/families, will the State consider allowing Districts to end school a little earlier than usual (some relaxation of days/hours per year)? Parents are already asking.
Michele Munson
53:40
Tased with colleagues today and the April vacation would be a really good break for everyone.
Lisa A. Witte
53:44
So if we are competency based and competency isn't based on seat time - work completion equates to competency?

Lisa A. Witte

We have told our families that we recognize that families and students will be able to engage in remote learning opportunities at different levels, in different ways, and to varying degrees - and that we support whatever level of engagement works for them.
Jay Badams
56:39
We’re keeping April Break as a break.
Greg
57:14
For districts whose years are based on hours instead of 180 days, how will remote learning affect that? If we have a school day that becomes shorter - in order to not have students on their computers for a very long stretch of time - can we still count it as if they had the normal amount of hours?
Kirk Beitler
57:26
I thought the State Board of Education waived the participation in the Blizzard Bag rule. We are competency based state why are we getting hung up on seat time. In a situation like this it seems like there needs to be flexibility in this expectation.
Michele Munson
57:31
We have done the same as Lisa - we even have Kindergarten and first grade teachers working with students in the evening when the parents are home.
Earl Metzler
58:47
We plan on having the April break.
ahutton

As part of our daily opening with younger learners, we have been having a read aloud ( children's book) by an admin. This was a parent suggestion and was a big hit with our students. BUT, we have been told this may be a copyright violation with the publisher; any advice?

As we prepare to extend this Remote Learning period, could the state provide guidance with regard to the ability for bus companies to access unemployment benefits for their drivers rather than asking districts to support this cost? We are being told by our vendor that many districts have already agreed to pay. Similarly, could the state provide guidance as to eligibility for hourly employees to participate in the unemployment benefits that the new Fed legislation will provide?

Scholastic has given permission for all schools to use their materials in read alouds and post on youtube or video. So feel free to use scholastic published books.

If the governor made social distancing more strict, calling for in-home quarantine for everyone like in other states, would that mean we would have to forfeit our system of remote instruction to adopt another system?
