Update: Change to elementary livestreaming

May 2, 2022
Dear Parents and/or Guardians,
I am writing to share that soon (beginning next Monday, May 9, 2022) the district will be changing its live-streaming practices for all elementary students (K-6 ONLY). 
To better meet the learning needs of our students and to provide more individualized and/or smaller group instruction we will be utilizing the support of internal and external online tutors instead of livestreaming from K-6 classrooms. This will occur when students are unable to attend school in person because they are COVID-19 positive and/or are COVID-19 symptomatic, as identified and confirmed by the district.
All assigned tutors will be working with students for several hours per day and will cover missed class work while also providing NYS standards-based, grade level instruction.
Please note, until we enact this transition, all of our elementary teachers will continue to provide live-streamed instruction with a priority that is focused on English Language Arts and Mathematics.
Please also note, all students who are in grades 7-12 who cannot attend school in person because they are COVID-19 positive and/or are COVID-19 symptomatic will continue to receive their educational program live-streamed as they normally have since the beginning of this school year.
As we transition to this new model, our goal is to better meet the specific learning needs of our students. With that said, should any parent or guardian have any concern as we enact these changes, we ask that you reach out directly to your school principal.
Thank you in advance for your support and patience as we transition to this new approach for our elementary students.
Yours in Education,
Dr. Mathis Calvin III
Superintendent of Schools
