The period for parents of Miami-Dade County Public School students to select their preference for the 2020-2021 school year has begun.
Parents have until July 10th to review the different models and take their individual survey.
Miami-Dade County Public Schools said the following to describe the process:
“In light of all the guidance we have reviewed and the information provided to us via survey from stakeholders, M-DCPS has identified four key principles to guide our approach for reopening schools.
Through its reopening plans, M-DCPS strives to:
- Ensure the safety and wellness of students and staff
- Deliver high-quality instruction to students
- Provide parents flexibility and choice in instructional delivery models
- Optimize use of resources
Our approach to opening schools has been a collaborative effort, as we gathered feedback from parents and teachers to inform how we approached reopening. Survey results clearly indicated that parents want choices for their child’s instructional model: face-to-face, online, or a combination of the two. This feedback informed our instructional model design. The two options listed below indicate the opportunity for you, the parents, to choose the instructional delivery model you feel most comfortable with and in which your child will be most successful. We believe strongly that there is an option to meet everyone’s needs.”
The reopening of schools relies completely on the county, as the plan will not take effect unless Miami-Dade County is in Phase II of reopening, which recent rollbacks to the reopening plan have placed that in question.
