MSDE Updates - Maryland's Recovery Plan for education
Maryland’s Recovery Plan for Education: Update on Reopening Plans, Special Education, and Monitoring and Evaluation as of September 22, 2020
NAESP along with NASSP, AASA (The School Superintendents Association) and Brown University have launched a new COVID in the schools mapping project. Principals who opt in agree to share 'anonymous' data in a biweekly survey on whether COVID cases of staff and/or students have occurred in their schools. The data will feed into summary information in the public dashboard, but won't show the cases at the individual's school level.
The National COVID-19 School Response Dashboard initiative was motivated by the need for better data on COVID-19 in schools during this time of reopenings and varied models of instruction. The key is to keep students and staff safe. To protect privacy, any publicly posted data will be identified only at the county level. Additionally, participating schools will be provided with feedback illustrating the data from their schools along with comparison data from other schools.
A press release on NPR on September 23rd may be found here. Registration and a survey link may be found here.
