From a June 23, 2020, Everett School District press release.
Everett Public Schools is hosting virtual community forums on Thursday, June 25th, and Tuesday, June 30th, to facilitate discussions and hear suggestions about school format and what are the public’s biggest concerns for school in the fall.
The forums start at 6:00 pm and is scheduled to go until 7:30 pm. Registration is capped at 300 per session, so please register early.
“We are planning for what returning to school in September will look like for students and staff. Current guidance gives us parameters to work within, and it is critical to hear from families on their thoughts and feelings about reopening schools,” said Kathy Reeves, director of communications for Everett Public Schools.
The two sessions are identical, so you only need to attend one.
You can register for the virtual session on the district’s website: https://www.everettsd.org/Page/36375.
In addition, the district will also be gathering feedback in more detailed family and staff surveys from June 29th to July 3rd, which will be specific to student grade level and will further help guide planning for safely reopening schools in the age of COVID-19.
Feedback is crucial to help ensure students and staff have healthy learning and working environments.
The district highly encourages participation in the survey, which will be sent to family and staff emails and be posted to the district website.
“We really value the input of our students, families and staff, and hope to receive a lot of feedback on how everyone is thinking about school in the fall,” urged Reeves.
