Continuity of Education Plan

For Student Engagement During Extended School Closure

Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

R.S.U. 67 remains committed to supporting students and families to navigate this challenging time.  The district’s first priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our students, staff, families, and community.  We have aligned our plan for continuity of education with the following guiding principles:

  1. Health: Focus on the physical health, safety, nutrition, social-emotional and mental health needs of our students, families, and staff. 

  2. Community: Enhance connections between students, schools, and families.

  3. Equity: Ensure equity for all students.

  4. Learning: Provide meaningful work that remediates and reviews content, allows a deeper understanding of previously taught content, and provides exposure to content.
