MRUSD Envisioning and COVID-19 Recovery Plan
Opportunities for engagement and feedback
Vermont’s education system has received and continues to receive, significant federal funding as part of the COVID-19 response. These funds are intended to “prepare for, prevent and respond” to COVID-19 and there is a broad, but definitive list of allowable costs that SU/SDs must follow. The US Department of Education states that these funds are intended, “to help safely reopen and sustain the safe operation of schools and address the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the nation’s students,” with a specific emphasis on meeting the needs of underserved student groups and those most significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Each SU/SD has been tasked by the Agency of Education with developing a plan for Education Recovery. These plans center on three main “pillars”: Social-emotional, Mental Health and Wellbeing; Student Engagement, and Academic Achievement. In addition, a fourth “pillar,” Safe and Healthy Operations has also emerged as a priority for Education Recovery and includes improvements to indoor air quality and other measures to improve learning environments. The development of these Education Recovery plans involved significant stakeholder input and were submitted to the AOE in June 2021.
In an effort to engage the Maple Run community in conversations around school improvement and our response to COVID-19, we’ve created the following avenues for the public to ask questions, offer feedback and help improve our work.
