MetroED Reopening of School Task Force
 

Introduction:


Procedures outlined within are intended to provide the Metropolitan Education District which operates Silicon Valley CTE and Silicon Valley Adult Education programs with guidance in preparing for and conducting an effective recovery and successful reopening of school sites. Because experts are continuing to learn more about COVID-19 and the conditions surrounding the crisis are continually evolving, this guidance will likely change, be amended or added to. This document was guided by a Recovery/Reopening Task Force team made up of twenty-five stakeholders including members from all unions, teachers, classified and certificated staff. Procedures outlined within this document are based on recommendations from Santa Clara County Health Department, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Santa Clara County Office of Education. Additional information and sample forms are included in the Appendices attached to this document.

This plan, protocols and policies will allow MetroED to reopen in any and all of the models listed:


Full Distance Learning

(no students)

Hybrid Model

(portion of students or staff on campus)

Full Reopening

(all students and staff on campus with or without restrictions)


Metropolitan Education District will have a COVID-19 Staff Liaison who serves as the district COVID-19 point person. The COVID-19 Liaison will respond to all COVID-19 issues. 


This plan addresses the following areas:

  • Health and Wellness
  • School and District Operations    
  • Teaching and Learning
  • Technology
  • Facilities
  • Human Resources

Staff training will be provided to all staff members at an In-service meeting prior to school reopening. 

Training will include:

  • Health Screenings Process
  • How to put on and take off a face covering
  • Expectations and how to monitor and ensure students wear face coverings
  • Instructing staff on air flow practices
  • Over emphasizing hygiene practices
  • Training staff on trauma informed practices and assessing students mental health
  • Policies to limit volunteers and other visitors on campus
  • Appropriate poster signage in all locations
  • COVID-19 staff responsibilities

District Recommendations:

  • Use of outdoor space for instructional purposes should be maximized as much as possible.
  • Large gatherings are currently prohibited.
  • Handle paper as little as possible; use electronic documents.
  • Student use in hallways should be minimized as much as possible.
  • Minimize sharing as much as possible and always sanitize.
  • Sharing any electronic devices, clothing, books should be avoided.
  • We encourage routine monthly testing of all staff when school is in session
