Reconnect, Restore, Reimagine are the guiding goals to reopen schools for the 2021-2022 school year. Below is the full, multi-year plan developed in partnership with our various stakeholders. It is also a reflection of our commitment to using the powerful lessons we have learned during the COVID-19 pandemic to cover unfinished learning and ultimately support students in reaching their full potentials.
We want students, families, and teachers to be clear about what they will experience as they return to our schools. This plan includes:
- The instructional practices we will use to accelerate and personalize learning.
- The enriched academic, athletic, and artistic opportunities they will be able to access.
- How their voices will continue to be used to inform decisions.
- How we will continue to support wellness.
- How we will build relationships and trust.

City Schools’ stakeholders have been invaluable partners during the past two school years providing insight and perceptions that were instrumental in informing our plan for moving forward and reopening our schools. This strong collaborative effort is essential and will continue for the current school year and beyond. Moving forward, there will be many opportunities for stakeholders to weigh in on their thoughts, experiences, and ideas for the best strategies to help all students succeed in our classrooms to better prepare them for their futures.
