Based on the guidelines released by the New York State Education Department, Monroe One BOCES has established a preliminary reopening plan for the 2020-21 school year.
Determinations will be made by region about opening and closing schools as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
The most up-to-date information about reopening will be posted to the district website and shared with families and staff via email and other methods of communication.
In October, Governor Cuomo announced a new cluster action initiative to address COVID-19 hot spots that have popped up around the state. The initiative divides clusters and the areas around them into three categories – the cluster itself (red zone), a warning zone (orange zone), and a precautionary zone (yellow zone).
Yellow Zone Designation: occurs when average positivity rate is above 3% for 10 days
Orange Zone Designation: occurs when average positivity rate is above 4% for 10 days
Red Zone Designation: occurs when average positivity rate is above 5% for 10 days
Once our region is given one of these zone designations, there are certain requirements districts must meet in order to stay open for or return to in-person instruction.
The New York State Department of Health requires districts to have plans in place for three instruction models: in-person, remote and hybrid.
All Monroe One BOCES students and staff will attend school in person up to five (5) days per week (required for all students attending in person: masks, social distancing and/or other PPE as required by NYSDOH)
All Monroe One BOCES students will take part in full-time remote instruction online with teachers delivering course content to students remotely
