REPORTS TO THE BOARD

Superintendent’s Report

Michael Green provides the board of directors with an update on the COVID-19 infection rates in Clark and Cowlitz Counties.  The current data from both counties show declining numbers of positive COVID-19 tests.  Green is hopeful that face-to-face instruction will happen sooner than later. He explained that obtaining new Chromebooks and hotspots is still a challenge. He talked about the declining enrollment numbers, and the survey sent to parents of PreK-4 students. The goal of the survey was to get a better understanding from families on their plans when the schools can reopen for face-to-face instruction. Mr. Green then shared the “One Goal. 3 Options.,” plan which will provide families with three different instructional choices: face-to-face instruction, a year-long remote model, and LRA.
