1.0 Plan Overview1.01 OverviewThe purpose of this planning guide is to inform members of the Mount Vernon City School Districton the necessary steps and protocols that will be used when the district reopens its doors inSeptember 2020. Most of the recommendations are based upon guidance from the Centers forDisease Control (CDC) and the official New York State Department of Education guidancedocuments released on July 16, 2020. The Mount Vernon Plan will be applied in a way that is“feasible, practical, acceptable, and tailored to the needs of our community.” We are alsoconsidering other forms of guidance and regulations from state and local health authorities as wellas the severity of the spread of infection in the area. Lastly, we have consulted with stakeholdersthroughout New York as well as various model state plans from other parts of the country. Thisplan encompasses best practices from a wide array of proven theoretical, scientific, practical, andresearch based information. Please note the CDC continues to update their guidance for schoolreopening including a checklist for parents and teachers (Checklist for Parents, Checklist forTeachers). As such, this plan is subject to change to embrace these updates.While this plan serves as a strong foundation for our reopening, we will keep this as a “WorkingDocument” and make revisions regularly. Schools should anticipate additional information overthe coming weeks and months based on new research, which should be carefully reconciled withour plan. The next step in the reopening process is for each of our schools to adopt a version ofthis plan to make their own within these guidelines. Building based implementation of this planshall be based on the unique circumstances of each school community within the Mount VernonCity School District.One of our guiding principles is to alignment of this reopening plan with the district ‘s vision andmission for our students:Vision: The Mount Vernon City School District will be recognized as a high-quality educationalsystem where all students receive a rigorous education, prepare to be college and career readyand develop the necessary skills to compete in a global society.Mission: It is the mission of the Mt. Vernon City School District (MVCSD) to create a sense ofurgency in partnership with members of its community in a journey to restore, rebuild andrebrand the district so that stakeholders are partners in providing all students with an exceptionaleducational experience.Our district strives for transparency and has engaged various stakeholders (e.g., staff, students,families, collective bargaining units, and community partners) throughout the planning process.2

This was accomplished through the Superintendent’s Reopening Task Force. To add furtheralignment, the Superintendent served on the NYSED Commissioner’s Reopening Task Force so thatinformation from the state’s plan could be accurately integrated into the district’s plan.Reimagining MVCSD in September is also based on these additional guiding principles forcoherence and congruency. These principles are deemed as high priorities as the foundation forplanning purposes. They are: The Health and Safety of staff and students is our top priority Mental & Social Emotional wellness drives this plan to action Maintaining continuity of instruction Ensuring access and equity for all students Communicating with stakeholders, such as staff, families, bargaining units and partners As this process unfolds, additional guidance from State Officials and Health Professionalswill dictate revisions to this plan1.02 Phases (“Steps”) of MitigationThe following phases for reopening will be implemented in the MVCSD and are consistent with therecommendations made by the CDC Guidance for Schools. Each phase is based on the currentspread of the virus and it may be necessary to move between phases based on current healthconditions and trends.The core objectives of this guidance include: Safety actions to: Promote healthy hygiene practices Intensify cleaning, disinfection, sanitization, and ventilation Ensure physical distancing Limit potential contamination Train all staff, students, and parents on Nonpharmaceutical Interventions (NPIs)and modified operational procedures Health monitoring and screening Check for signs and symptoms Plan for when a staff, child, or visitor becomes sick Maintain healthy operations to monitor and ensure that risk-reduction strategiesare in useStep 1 - Substantial Spread: Schools Closed (Remote Distance Learning Instruction)Schools and facilities that are currently closed remain closed. Digital learning or distance learningopportunities will be provided for all students as per our learning models.

Cancel most extracurricular activities (e.g., sports, assemblies, dances, etc.) Establish and maintain communication with local and state health officials Participate in contact tracing efforts to the extent feasible as directed by local healthofficials (See Contact Tracing) Isolate and disinfect impacted classrooms and spaces (See Cleaning and Disinfecting).Step 3 - Schools Open: Low/No Spread (Cohort Groups)In Step 3, the district will: Utilize normal class sizes but limit the interaction of classes with other groups (cohorts) Limit gatherings in shifts - recess, cafeteria, and hallway passing Assess group gatherings and events on an ongoing basis to determine if any events mightput students, staff, or their families in close proximity to others and should be canceled.The district will consult with local health officials to help determine the best approach Establish and maintain communication with local and state health officials Participate in contact tracing efforts to the extent feasible as directed by local healthofficials (See Contact Tracing).1.04 Site Safety MonitorsThe district will establish a District-wide Safety Manager(s) that will oversee continuouscompliance with all aspects of this plan.
