Read Bellaire Public Schools’ Full Return to Learn Plan, accepted and adopted by the Board of Education on September 21, 2020
2020-21 School Year Overview
Michigan schools are using the Safe Schools Roadmap for a safe, efficient, and equitable return to school for 2020-21. The roadmap provides required and strongly recommended safety protocols to keep communities safe, in addition to recommendations supporting mental and social-emotional health, instruction, and operations within each phase of the MI Safe Start Plan. The Roadmap is a framework to ensure these guiding principles:
- Equitable access to learning is a right for each child.
- In collaboration with parents, students, and teachers, schools will use data and evidence to prioritize resources for each child.
- Teachers and staff will prioritize deep, meaningful relationships to create safe learning environments for each child.
- Teachers and staff will empower the value, cultivation of relationships, and belonging of student and parent voice in all aspects of learning and emotional support for families.
