Reopening Family Questionnaire

Greetings Seaford BlueJays,
The Seaford School District is prepared to educate our students with the same high standard we all expect, whether that is done in our physical buildings, or at home through distance learning. BlueJays take care of one another!
For the coming school year each student will be loaned a district owned Chromebook to use for on-line instruction. Students will be held accountable for active engagement during on-line instruction days. Student attendance will also be taken during the on-line sessions. Our district teaching staff will also engage in professional development to ensure they are ready to deliver this type of instruction to our students.
We are launching a questionnaire that is asking which option you prefer for your child(ren). We believe that our students learn best when they can be engaged in the classroom through in-person instruction. However, we know that we must have options available for safety considerations.
Communicate your honest thoughts by participating in our questionnaire located at this link: https://survey.sogosurvey.com/r/tAC6Hv as soon as possible and no later than Friday, August 7th.
These questionnaires are very important for the district. The data obtained from the questionnaires will help us determine bus routes as well as class assignments. Families will decide for how their child will be educated for the first marking period.
We want you to have a voice in this process. We ask each of you to please take the family survey for each of your individual students on the reopening of schools.

Reopening Communication for the 2020-21 School Year from Dr. Miklus

Next week the Governor will release his final recommendation for how schools will be opened this Fall. I wanted to take this time to let our families know the planning that has been taken place in our district this summer. Reopening committees were formed that included administrators, teachers, support staff, and parents. These committees worked to design plans so we can re-open schools in a safe manner. Currently our district is finalizing plans for a “Hybrid Model” which means students would have a mix of face to face instruction as well as on-line instruction in their home. We are also developing our plan for 100% on-line instruction. At this point the district is anticipating a Hybrid start for the school year.

For the coming school year each student will be loaned a district owned Chromebook to use for on-line instruction. Students will be held accountable for active engagement during on-line instruction days. Student attendance will also be taken during the on-line sessions. Our district teaching staff will engage in professional development to ensure they are ready to deliver this type of instruction to our students.

Questionnaires:
Starting tomorrow questionnaires will be available for all families to complete. You will be able to locate these surveys on our district and school webpages. These questionnaires are very important for the district. The data obtained from the questionnaires will help us determine bus routes as well as class assignments. The due date to complete this questionnaire will be August, 7, 2020. Please note that parents will be making a decision for how their child will be educated for the first marking period. Another questionnaire will be administered mid way through the first marking period so we can plan for the 2nd marking period.

Dr. Corey Miklus, Superintendent of the Seaford School District

Update from the Seaford School District on the 2020-21 School Year

The Seaford School District is currently working on plans for the 2020-2021 school year. Please know that the districts plans will focus on the safety of our staff and students.

The district has formed three internal work groups which have been working on our reopening plans. The groups are Academics & Equity, Health & Wellness, and Operations & Services. Each group has been tasked with planning for three different return to school scenarios. Those scenarios are:
• Face to Face Instruction (Traditional)
• Hybrid Instruction (Part time Face to Face and part time Remote)
• 100% Remote Instruction
Throughout the last several months, we have closely monitored the COVID19 cases in our community and throughout the state. Similarly, our reopening plans are dependent on the amount of “community spread” in our area and throughout the state. Depending on the amount of “community spread”, the district will determine how instruction will be provided -- Face to Face, Hybrid, or Remote.

We will continue to monitor the amount of “community spread” throughout the summer to determine which plan we will use to reopen our schools. Additionally, we will work collaboratively with the Governor’s Office and the Delaware Department of Education to finalize plans in the near future.
