Milton School Committee approves COVID-19 pandemic policy
At the August 26, 2020 Milton Public Schools School Committee meeting, new policies were voted on and approved.
Given the unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 pandemic the realities of providing education may require deviation from established Milton Public School policies.
Pursuant to this policy, the Superintendent is generally empowered to deviate from MPS policy to maintain the health and safety of the MPS community, while maintaining academic standards of the highest level possible. Such deviations shall be reported to the School Committee as part of the ongoing feedback and communication process between the Superintendent and the School Committee.
However, modifications of certain school policies may require School Committee approval related to educational policy, including but not limited to:
- The 2020-2021 School calendar;
- Grading and Retention; and
- Local graduation requirements
Changes in the current COVID education model between full in person, hybrid, and full remote models shall be voted by the School Committee as soon as practicable.
This policy shall remain in effect until July 1, 2021, unless modified or rescinded by the School Committee.
