NHDOE COVID-19 Update with Education Leaders
Terri Drogue
38:37
I've been told that DCYF is requiring students placed in foster care to register in the school where they are placed. For special education students who have ESY in their IEPs and are also recently placed into foster care in a different town, which district is responsible for the (remote) ESY? Specifically, should the child register in the town of placement per DCYF regs and receive their ESY from the district they were receiving remote services from throughout the spring?

How do we do the poll? email?

Question 2 [on the poll] needs a “both” or “hybrid” option…
John Freeman
40:16
Poll doesn't distinguish between a graduation taking place in May/June or later
Allyn Hutton
40:18
I have asked this before, but still have not heard a real response. It appears there CARE funds will not be adequate to cover bus expenses paid for services not received. We paid our bus company the portion which covers the salaries of bus drivers ; are there federal funds anywhere to assist schools with jobs saved?

Any word on Summer Camps?
Marion Anastasia WMRSD
40:32
The graduation survey does not indicate if the graduation is in June or at a later date in August or later...
Bill Lupini
40:34
Question 2: Responded “in person,” although we are actually doing something that is more of a hybrid model.
Linda Brady
40:39
Chris Bond very helpful walking through year end-- thank you Chris!
Grant Bosse
41:00
The May 8, 2020 is the latest.
Corinne Cascadden
41:05
Can we get the guidance before it's in the press?

Ours will be a parade to each graduate’s home. With only 7 grads we can do that

The poll doesn't really give enough options. We are hoping for in person, but will do virtual if conditions do not allow. And it depends upon when. Now looking at July, might go to August....
Val Carey
42:09
We are doing a hybrid model of scheduling times to cross the stage and have their moment with family audience, then piecing together a video. This is for 8th grade.
Donald Erdbrink
42:24
I responded Virtual but we are also probably going to be a hybrid of virtual and in person.
Val Carey
42:34
Couldn't really fit that response in the poll constructs

Donald Erdbrink

Agreed the poll needs more questions. When are folks holding them? June? July?

Thanks, Dr. C. DOIT is correcting that now,
Rick Johnson
45:18
Agree with others about the poll and its limitations
Sandie MacDonald
45:48
Responded virtual but like others we are doing hybrid. Poll didn't really hit what we are actually doing.
Robert Gadomski
47:21
We are also doing a hybrid in SAU 56
Tony Polito, Granite St Arts Acad
47:56
Granite State is probably going to wind up with a hybrid.
Debbie Thompson
48:28
Do you know if the Credentialing email will come from NOREPLY, so we can let our staff know what to be on the look-out for?
Tony Polito, Granite St Arts Acad
48:53
Hybrid (by the chat) appears to be the most common option?
Kearsarge Regional School District

Same... virtual with students and parents recorded getting their diplomas in person in small groups. Recorded into graduation production video streamed to Facebook and a copy provided to families.

The updated year-end-guidance does not give us enough to work with. We are getting all sorts of pressure from parents about an outdoor ceremony, which we have said would violate current orders. However, this new guidance says that outdoors is "possible" if "wide social distancing is observed" and it would NOT be a "gathering of 10 or more. So, what does "wide" mean? The 6' stated earlier? More distance than that? How does that avoid being a gathering? Whatever leeway is noted here, our parents will be jumping on, even if we do not think it is appropriate or the most safe for our students. I think we are not alone in trying our best to follow the state guidelines but getting LOTS of pressure.

Remote Learning grants were on the GMS and now they are not. When will they be back up?
Sarah
49:16
If we have already recommended staff, will the emails go out? Or is it only for people moving forward?
Steve Appleby
49:44
Credentialing email should come from either noreply or cert.info@doe.nh.gov. IF you have any questions please email me at stephen.appleby@doe.nh.gov

Re: Foster care- may become a Best Interest Determination decision between the districts. Just my two cents.

Concerns around summer camps--the limiting numbers and asymptomatic transmission-- aren't really that different than what we are facing for ESY and Title I programs. Having this guidance before it goes to the papers would be wonderful!
Corinne Cascadden
55:12
re-opening? what was first mentioned to be posted later today?
Darrell Lockwood
55:49
Many districts have promotion exercises for grades other than 12. Not sure if we were supposed to participate in the poll?
Dr C

if people want to stay on the call I do hav a song of inspiration

Often it goes to their personal email in EIS, rather than the school email.
Val Carey
57:09
the links are reversed on your website. click return to school for year end events
beitlerk

we worked with our town health officer - our fire chief to clarify what our gathering could be for graduation
Andrea Elliot
59:06
can you post that updated event guidance once more? I couldn't download it
Steve Appleby
01:00:13
Emails sent from EIS are delivered to the email address that the educator has entered as their 'primary' email address. We encourage educators to use their personal addresses in case they change districts.
Steve Appleby

Only going forward from today.

I know it was mentioned, but to clarify. We waited for guidance that was promised for weeks on End of Year Events. I understand the delays. What was frustrating was when that guidance was posted on the website before it came to school leaders. I have watched superintendents be ripped to shreds on social media over "lying" about not having guidance, because it was on the website. We depend on guidance to come to us. We can't check the website every minute.
