It has been our intention to return to some form of in-person learning as soon as it was determined by our health departments that it is both safer and feasible to do so. On September 21, during our virtual town hall with county health department officials, we reviewed the current coronavirus data for our community. To this end, our county health agency partners have made the recommendation that it is now appropriate for us to return to a hybrid learning model. Click here to watch the virtual town hall discussion about the data guiding our decisions and current levels in our community. Beginning Monday, October 5, we will be implementing a hybrid in-person learning schedule for all students who are not currently enrolled in the LaunchED program. LaunchED student’s schedules will not be impacted by this change.
Cómo usted sabe, nuestra intención ha sido volver a alguna forma de aprendizaje en persona tan pronto cómo nuestros departamentos de salud determinen que es más seguro y factible hacerlo. Anoche, durante nuestra junta virtual con los funcionarios del departamento de salud del condado, revisamos los datos actuales del coronavirus para nuestra comunidad. Con esto, nuestros asociados de las agencias de salud pública del condado han recomendado que ahora es apropiado que regresemos a un modelo de aprendizaje híbrido. Haga clic aquí para ver la discusión de la junta virtual sobre los datos que guían nuestras decisiones y los niveles actuales en nuestra comunidad. Comenzando el lunes 5 de octubre, estaremos implementando un programa de aprendizaje híbrido en persona para todos los estudiantes que no estén inscritos actualmente en el programa LaunchED. Los horarios de estudiantes LaunchED no serán impactados por este cambio.
Keeping in mind what is best for students and the group as a whole; being honest even when it is difficult; following through with commitments; fairness (fair isn't always equal - dilemma of difference)
Making sure all voices in the room are heard and respected; open door policy; compassion & empathy; ability to take on another's perspective
Tasks and expectations are clearly understood with time for people to ask clarifying questions; the process and types of information used to make decisions are stated upfront
Always learning and thinking about how to improve; using research and experience to guide thinking & procedures; learning from all people and situations; reflection
Systems thinking; smart policies and procedures; issues addressed in a timely fashion; deadlines met
Using current research and materials to guide instruction; common professional knowledge base; agreed upon practices; consistent use of data
Done with compassion; for the betterment of the group; describe behavior and consequences
The more the group can exchange criticism with good will, the stronger the trust and the higher the accountability (e.g. bringing issues to the group rather than just individual; group will support both people in this difficult endeavor).
If anyone feels there is a hidden agenda, this should be called out; competing interests should be clearly identified
This is an interactive process; active summarizing
