Parent Survey Info & Request to complete by 8/7

Dear Parents and Caregivers of Ballston Spa students –

We continue our work and planning for the reopening of schools in September. While we currently have a general plan in which all of the technical requirements from the Department of Health and the State Education Department are met, making this technical plan an operational plan for each of our schools will require additional work and additional information. The work will be in the form of Board of Education communications and feedback; school-based work groups consisting of parents, administrators, teachers, school staff, employee organization leaders; work with our employee associations; reviewing emails to our schoolopening@bscsd.org mailbox; reviewing and acting upon additional information from the state, and/or reviewing updates from our school district attorneys.  

For additional information, we are asking for your help in letting us know the intentions that each of you have for your child(ren) for the fall. The parent survey at the link below asks for the key information that will assist us in determining transportation capacity and routes, building organization and classroom structures, our food service arrangement, and how we can best develop a process for gathering student health information prior to the start of school each day.

All of this, as I have mentioned before, is contingent upon the announcement from the Governor that schools will be allowed to reopen in September. That announcement is expected next week. Although this will likely be covered in all of the major media outlets, we will nonetheless communicate directly with you once that announcement is made. In the meantime, please be sure to check our School Opening Information page on our website for additional information about our planning.

Our thanks for your continued support, patience, and assistance as we work towards September.

Ken Slentz
Superintendent of Schools
Ballston Spa CSD
