TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) —The Vigo County School Corporation is asking for parent and caregiver input as they create a plan for a safe return to school in August.
Parents and caregivers are asked to complete a survey regarding their perspective on how school will look in the fall. The district hopes to hear from parents by the end of the week.
“We are working on a back to school plan with two guiding principles,” Bill Riley, director of communications for the district, said. “One: we want to offer an in-person, in-school education to every student, five days a week. Two: we want to make sure that we have the health and safety protocols necessary to offer that kind of education, keep our students and staff safe, and prevent a prolonged school closure this year.”
The survey covers a number of scenarios that are not fully-realized plans, but meant to gauge parent and caregiver comfort with a range of policies. The survey also asks for data on how many students share a 凯发K8国际手机版home with someone at higher risk for COVID-19, how many students experience diagnosed sensory issues, and how many students lack internet access at 凯发K8国际手机版home and deal with food insecurity.
Riley said the school corporation hopes to present a back-to-school plan to the board of school trustees for a vote at the July meeting.
