Each school and/or district reopening plan describes the school schedule planned for implementation at the beginning of the 2020-21 school year and to the extent practicable any contingent scheduling models it may consider if the situation warrants.
The Fayetteville-Manlius CSD collaborated with stakeholders including, but not limited to, teachers, staff members, parents, and community groups when considering alternate schedules. Based on stakeholder feedback and parent/guardian surveys, it was deemed important that students should have a “teacher-of-record” whether they are scheduled for an in-person, remote, or hybrid learning environment. This was prioritized in order to provide maximum flexibility and allow students to shift back-and-forth in between fully remote learning models and in-person instruction should circumstances change and school buildings are required to close. This was determined to be mission critical because regardless of the instructional model implemented, equity and access must be the priority for all students including, but not limited to, students with disabilities, English language learners, and students experiencing homelessness.
When developing the following schedule, the Fayetteville-Manlius CSD had to abide by health and safety standards and the most up to date guidance from the New York State Department of Health. Furthermore, consideration was given to the needs of students, families, and staff as well as the realities of available space and student enrollment in each unique school and district.
Moreover, school officials understood their responsibility to restructure their programs using flexible scheduling models— taking advantage of in-person, remote, or hybrid learning models—and to provide synchronous and/or asynchronous instruction. Per the New York State Department of Health guidance, it is incumbent upon the school district that the plan must address a combination of in-person instruction and remote learning to facilitate a phased-in approach or hybrid model, which may be necessary at various times throughout the 2020-2021 school year because of school closure triggers.
If COVID-19 cases develop, the Fayetteville-Manlius CSD may elect to restrict access within school facilities and across school grounds, particularly in those affected areas in an effort to circumvent a full school closure. In such an instance, the Fayetteville-Manlius CSD also reserves the right to temporarily move classes where an individual (teacher, staff member and or student) has tested positive for COVID-19 to a remote/virtual format until all contacts can be identified, notified, tested, and cleared.
