II. Work Session: District Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

In response the COVID-19 pandemic, JCPS students have spent the first semester of this academic year learning remotely under Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI). District leadership has closely monitored data regarding COVID-19 in our community, and has relied upon evolving guidance from local, state, and national officials for an appropriate response for PreK-12 education. New information and guidance arrive frequently, and the Superintendent must keep the Board, JCPS staff and families, and the community informed regarding the planning and implementation of the District’s response.

This work session will allow the Board members to interact with assistant superintendents and principals who have been planning for an in-person return to school. The District team will share plans and answer questions.
