when can we get the ESY document?
We have already decided to provide ESY remotely.
We have too.
What would the school's options be if a parent refused to wear a face mask dropping off, or allowing their child to wear a face mask?
We have decided on Distance Learning also
Will this document be sent out today? Thank you!
Is there guidance regarding transportation? Although we have already decided to be completely remote for ESY, wondering for potentially in fall.
We've decided to provide ESY remotely as well.
When do we anticipate that this document will be finalized?
We are doing remote as well, just curious what the school's options are if parent/child refuse to follow or adhere to PPE guidance. Many identified children will struggle with wearing PPE.
I have 49 elementary students eligible for ESY. The governor still says no groups of more than 10 students. If we were feeling safe enough to provide ESY in a face-to-face manner, we would have to hire a great deal more staff which would cost well above the additional funding that has been provided to the district, and the budget in effect as of July 1 is a default budget so there is no extra funding available then.
MSD has nearly 400 students eligible for ESY…
How would we be able to afford to provide 5 teachers and enough paraprofessional support. These are tsome of the reasons we have decided to go remote.
I don't understand children not required to use face masks - not to protect them, but to protect US. Kids can transmit, even if they are not as vulnerable. How do we maintain social distance with young children. I feel like I am missing something. This seems to assume that the risk infection has greatly decreased, but we are still under state requirements for social distancing and many public places require masks for all, why not schools?
Can we please have this document today even though it is in draft form? It is clearly marked as draft.
Are these guidelines for general and special education students? Has there been an opportunity for superintendent voice to also look at draft and provide feedback?
I agree with Elaine. We need this even in draft form. We have two weeks to review this and make decisions before our school year end. We were promised guidelines by May 15 and would very much appreciate this today.
Is it still an option to continue with Distance Learning or are we now obligated to provide small group instructions to students in the school environment for ESY? Do individual school districts have the option to continue with distance learning?
How many disitrct have already made the decions to have remote ESY? This would a good poll question.
I figured there were many there not willing to wear masks. In our district, the concern was for the child who would not be able to keep the mask on and that's one of the reasons why we decided to provide ESY remotely. Another concern for us was transportation.
Yes, Rick, I agree.
How do the transportation guidance translate to the small vans/busses used to transport to out of district?
Thank you to the Directors who are providing feedback!
yes, please send this out in draft form today
Who would administer the screening of students before they get on the bus?
Is there guidance re: screening students prior to embarking to school #13? school or parent support
When will you share this document? Sorry if I missed it.
Since the document is not being released, you can review Stay at Home 2.0 child care re-opening guidance that has been released. It is quite similar
Thank you Pam!
Sanborn is remote for ESY
We have 300 + students who are eligible for ESY. There is no way we can put these precautions into place between now and the start of ESY, nor the funds for this
So what happens if we don’t do small groups but this documented is released and a family files a complaint? How would we not be in noncompliance?
Who will be providing training to private transportation companies relative to these guidelines?
Here is the direct link to Stay at Home 2.0 Child Care Guidelines. As Pam said, very similar. https://www.covidguidance.nh.gov/sites/g/files/ehbemt381/files/inline-documents/2020-05/guidance-child-care.pdf
Thank you Michael!
If you choose not share the draft version, when would the document be finalized and then shared?
Are school nurses recommended to be part of the summer program staffing to monitor protocols, students and staff?
Remote learning IS the school setting right now. In so many situations, people accept that things aren't like they were prior to March. (dentist & doctor visits, wedding plans, funeral procedures, DMV tests) Why are schools under intense pressure to provide what was available before, when it just isn't safe to do so?
So you are saying that we can do remote learning and if a parent files a complaint the DOE would say we aren’t in noncompliance with implementing the IEP based off of face-to-face services not being provided?
Reviewing the CDC guidance just released this week, employee training is referenced to meet safeguards. Will DHHS provide these training modules?
how do we explain to parents and others if we choose to do small cohorts which doesn’t include all students who we picked and how we picked them? I’m worried about this
Can you repeat who is working on this guidance?
Good question Mary. It will be helpful to have a well crafted response and communication strategy for that.
Thanks for checking. It is just confusing when you say, “if you choose to provide in person services.” It sounds like it is an option.
Will we be able to have a meeting with Tricia Tilley and Dr. Chan to review the final document?
When will the MOE, excess cost and parentally placed forms for the FY21 IDEA Grant be posted on the website?
Case by case basis may not equate to equity…
And the allocations released.
Please scroll to the evaluation section again.
I am sorry I joined let, are you sharing this document with us
okay thank you
That would be wonderful, thank you!
Heard from staff who were in the Case Manager NHSEIS webinar this morning that there were glitches with the Electronic signature roll out so the roll out is on hold? Can you address this?
Just wondering if there has been any feedback on how the Parent Portal is going from those districts who started using it?
The purpose of sharing the draft would be to help districts plan, not to distribute to parents.
Is there guidance around screening staff? Their rights/ responsibilities in not coming to work etc.
Will there be state guidance on process/procedures for determining the need for compensatory services? (For folks returning to in-person ESY, this question may come up sooner than later.)
Can you go back to pick up and drop off
My case managers asked how parents can sign during meetings with the portal in place when we are back in school
Do they need to sign using the portal?
I am hearing of districts using plexiglas dividers (such as used in the grocery stores). If folks on the call know where to purchase such, perhaps the DOE can also share during the next call (for summer and fall use). Thx!
There are masks for sale at Staples. AND N95 masks.
the masks with clear fronts are only available with huge quantity orders
Plexiglass dividers are available on Amazon and other manufactures. They can be constructed as well.
there is a spot on the website to only order a box
How will charter schools receive funding for such supplies to provide services?
for the clear masks
the Communicator masks are hard to find - does anyone have a site that they have available now?
Can you explain the email that went out regarding NHSEIS and case manager information
if anyone is ordering clear quantity masks, please let me know at SAU 24
Will the parent portal send documents to two parents if they are both checked off as guardians (ie divorced with equal educational rights).
The clear masks said they are delivering July 1
Are PPEs a part of the IEP? If not, why would districts provide PPEs to chartered schools.
Mary Lane has.a site
Some of the masks are on back order because of the demand. Sharing this information would be great
General re: parent portal
Where have people could clear masks - can you email me or type in chat box

Sorry, I signed in late today, are you emailing the draft guidance document to all of us?
When will this draft be finalized and avaialbe?
when will new IDEA FY’21 instructions, permissible use, MOE etc be available
Will the Governor be making an announcement re: summer programming? Or each district makes their own determination?
Any idea when the Governor will let schools now if ESY can be delivered face to face. Assume from this doc that it will happen.
Would you please share pg one of the draft?
I know Dr. Chan is busy, but if there is a public forum for educators (and parents) addressing these topics and safeguards, I think that would be helpful. Thx Becky
Is there a start date?
Yes, summer in person
Do we know when the governor will be speaking next?
Thanks for clarifying, this guidance is for small group co horts
You are awesome, thank you!
