UCF updated reopening plan

The Unionville-Chadds Ford School District has released its updated proposed plan for reopening schools. School board directors will be voting on whether to adopt the plan Monday night, Aug. 3 at 7:30.

According to an email from Superintendent of Schools John Sanville, the plan took into consideration ideas from students, teachers, and parents. Three principles were used as the base for the plan:

  1. Keep everyone safe - our plan invests our resources to utilize and enact the best research-based mitigation strategies to keep students and staff safe;
  2. Provide an excellent educational experience - this is core to our mission;
  3. Support students and staff socially and emotionally - we all know that stress and anxiety is very real for us all - we are ready to support the needs of our students and staff.

Sanville summarized the plan with these points:

  • K-3 students will attend school in-person daily - class sizes reduced to 12-13 to accommodate six feet of social distancing.
  • 4-12 students will attend school in person two days out of our six-day cycle in an AB/CD/EF format. The other four days will be a synchronous online experience.
  • All students will have a remote learning option if brick and mortar does not meet your needs.
  • Masks are required for everyone.
  • All classrooms will adhere to six feet of social distancing.
  • School will start for students on Sept. 8 (instead of Aug. 31) - allowing teachers to participate in professional development.
