Responsible Return 3.0

Responsible Return 3.0 Banner
Dear Worcester County families and community,

I want to begin by extending my sincerest thanks to you for the incredible patience, understanding, and support you have shown us as we navigated very difficult circumstances amid what felt like a never-ending crisis. As we look ahead to the 2022 - 2023 school year, I am happy that our schools will once again resemble the places of learning our students and you - our families - have longed for.

While the pandemic has ended, we have learned valuable lessons from this time. These lessons are woven through both this plan as well as established best practices for general health and safety, instruction, and technology integration.

With that in mind, I want you to know that this plan looks very different from previous years as our focus shifts to recovery of learning. Notably, you'll see the removal of our stages of learning. In Worcester, we have consistently advocated for students' safe return to the classroom early in this pandemic. We led the way in designing strategies and protocols that did just that.

Once again, we anticipate leading the way as we continue our work to close those learning gaps that either appeared or widened as a result of these tumultuous years. We look forward to your
partnership in this endeavor.
