Team Purpose

The purpose of the Metrics Reopening Advisory Team is to study the metrics and progress related to the Reopening Plan in an ongoing way in order to guide improvements and adjustments to health/safety protocol and in-person reopening efforts as well as suggest improvements to operational procedures and health/safety protocol in terms of mitigation of the spread of the virus when staff and students are in our buildings. This is not a voting body but rather, it will help establish and review metrics to guide decisions on adjustments to plans and implementation thereof. The Metrics Reopening Advisory Team will make recommendations to the superintendent regarding adjustments to the learning models and implementation of guidance on a week-to-week basis.
