Hybrid Learning Preparation Task Force. This group’s responsibility is to research and plan for a hybrid-learning environment in 2020–21. Hybrid learning is a pedagogical design that proves maximum flexibility between online and on-campus instruction while retaining our primary focus on the wellness and engagement of our learners. In addition, this group will consider the academic schedule to optimize our learning-management system and faculty professional growth, and create a system for a sustainable, challenging, and holistic learning environment for our students whether remotely or on campus.
Reopening-Campus Task Force. We will make plans for on-campus teaching and learning with adherence to state and CDC guidelines and will be focusing on arrival and dismissal, cleaning protocols, group sizes, classroom procedures, shared materials, lunch and snack procedures, health-screening and nurse-station protocols, visitor policy, group activities (such as physical education and sports), and movement through buildings.
Community-Building Task Force. The goal of this group is to enhance and maintain our school community by supporting all constituencies — students, parents, faculty, staff, and alumnae — whether on campus or remotely. With belonging, connectedness, and inclusion, at the center of our work, we can maintain and grow our community bonds. The task force plans to consider the survey data compiled during spring remote learning as a tool to inform how we better support the needs of the entire KPS community.
