Logistics

The following items have been discussed as the committee’s primary areas of focus for this year:

Staffing

While the committee will not be involved in making staffing decisions, they will be working with human resources to make sure that staff members have input as to any change in building or assignment.  Classroom placements, as well as structure and changes to special programs (foreign language, music, art, PE, special ed, intervention programs, etc.) will also be a focus of our work, in consultation with other committees. 

Moving

We will coordinate the process of identifying a moving company for those changing buildings or classrooms,  and make sure appropriate communication happens regarding technology, furnishings, boxes, phones, etc.

Transportation

We will work with the Director of Transportation to establish ideal start and end times for each building, and to communicate early and effectively with parents in terms of bus routes and plans.

School-Aged Child Care

Multiple options for latchkey  have been discussed, each with pros and cons. We will continue to update the community as more information is available.
