2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR PLANNING GUIDE
Updated November 17, 2020

The 2020-2021 Planning Guide has been updated to provide an overview of instructional and operational protocols that will be in place during the 2020-2021 school year now that the school year is underway.

While it is not all encompassing of all protocols and procedures, it provides stakeholders a concise overview. The plan and protocols will be evaluated and adjusted as the situation evolves and we receive new guidance from health and government officials.

This is an unprecedented situation and we appreciate the patience of our STPPS family. From the beginning, we have been in this together, we returned to school together, and we will remain together as we navigate this school year. Together, We Are STPPS.

The 2020-2021 School Year Planning Guide was posted online to provide an overview of the instructional models and procedures that would be in place for the beginning of school and it is not all encompassing. From the beginning of the COVID-19 situation, we have said our plans will change as new guidance is received and the situation evolves.

The 2020-2021 School Year Planning Guide is an online document that will continue to be updated as protocols and plans are adjusted as needed. We began the school year following Phase 2 of our plan based on the phase the state was in when we prepared for the beginning of school and during our “Safe Start Days.” When Governor Edwards announced the state was moving to Phase 3, we carefully evaluated the needs of each school and assessed what is best for our students, families, and employees moving forward.

After receiving their feedback, collaborating with health officials and evaluating the new guidance from LDOE, we determined our plan for learning models in Phase 3 could not happen as we had planned due to required changes in protocols and logistics in our 55 brick-and-mortar schools. We want to provide the most productive learning environment for students, but health and safety remain our top priorities. The transition to daily in-person learning at all grade levels for all students has to be measured and done only when we feel it is safe to do so.

We have revised the 2020-2021 School Year Planning Guide to reflect those changes and to help clarify how decisions will be made this school year. We will continue to evaluate the situation and make adjustments as needed.

As we begin the 2020-2021 school year, our district is prepared to focus on instruction while at the same time addressing the physical, mental and social well-being of our students and needs of our community. Health and safety protocols will be in place to keep students, families and employees safe and healthy.

This plan outlines instructional and operational protocols that will be in place at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. While it is not all encompassing of all protocols and procedures, it provides stakeholders a concise overview. The plan and protocols will be evaluated and adjusted as the situation evolves and we receive new guidance from health and government officials.

This is an unprecedented situation and we appreciate the patience of our STPPS family. From the beginning, we have been in this together, we will begin school together, and we will remain together as we navigate this school year. Together, We Are STPPS.
