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.
If a region is in Phase 4 and has a daily infection rate of 5% or lower over a 14-day average, schools in that region could hold in-person instruction.
If daily infection rates exceed 9% over a seven-day average, schools in that region would be directed to close.
These reopening plans will continually be evaluated and updated in accordance with local, state and federal guidelines. 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.
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)
