Reopening School Draft Plan (Approval)

LEAP days discussed. The academic calendar has to maintain 105 days. The recommendation to keep the start date August 18, 2020 by Deirdre McCullough. E-learning will potentially take place on student holidays to maintain the previously approved 2020-2021 academic calendar. 

The Board suggests parents who want virtual learning enroll in K12 for the virtual platform. Face-to-face learning will take place unless the Charter District deems the area a hot-spot and closes the school. At that time all learning will move to BPA’s virtual learning until the students are allowed back face-to-face. 

The proposal for BPA’s plan for reopening was reviewed and discussed. 

Motion to approve the BPA Plan for Reopening School made by James Galyean; Magon Wilson 2nd. Motion carries.
