  • Pittsford Schools Extended Covid-19 Learning Plan

    On August 20, 2020, Governor Whitmer signed House Bill 5913 into law as Public Act 149.  Section 98a states that in order to receive state aid for 2020-2021, districts must provide for instruction under an extended COVID-19 Learning Plan (“Plan”) that has been approved by an intermediate district or authorizing body.  The Plan does not replace the District’s/PSA’s COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan, it is an additional plan that includes new assurances and sections on educational goals, instructional delivery, grading, and equitable access.  PA 149 does not apply to districts that operate as a cyber school. 

    Please follow this link to read the plan in its entirety

  • A Letter from the Superintendent to Pittsford Families

    August 3, 2020


    Hello Wildcat Families! 

    As our committee continues to develop our Back to School Plan for this fall, we wanted to provide you with an update. Please keep in mind that we are still working our way through the plan based on current Executive Orders and law which could both change suddenly and force us to modify our plans. We anticipate we will have our finalized Back to School Plan by next week. This school year is sure to require flexibility as we all work through an ever-changing environment. Our goal is to create the best plan we can which will allow for a high-quality education while keeping our students and staff safe. 

    Student Learning: Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order 2020-142 provides a structure to support all schools in Michigan as they plan for a return of pre-K-12 education in the fall. Under the order, school districts must adopt a COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan laying out how they will cope with the disease across the various phases of the Michigan Safe Start Plan. One of the directions given to us by the Governor is to create a system, which allows for a quick shift from in-person instruction to online instruction in case our region is moved to Phase 1-3. We are also aware for many families, there is a desire to utilize a remote format at this time. Therefore, we are going to offer two options: in-person and remote. Our teachers will work to create their lessons so that, regardless of which option chosen, students will be receiving a similar curriculum. If we are still in Phase 4 or Phase 5, we will offer both the remote and in-person instruction.

                 

    Unknowns: Like you, we are also wondering what is going to happen over the next few weeks. Will the current orders change? Will the legislature change the rules regarding online learning, pupil accounting, instructional hour requirements, seat-time requirements, and more? The good news is most of the policy/legal issues should be resolved soon, which will give us enough time to be ready for our first day of school. 

    On behalf of our committee, thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this complicated process. As more of our requirements become clarified and our plan develops more, we will share those details with you.

    Please take a moment to complete the following survey by August 10th to help us better prepare for the upcoming school year.

     Thank you,
