1.4. Public Comment
2. NEW BUSINESS/ACTION ITEMS
2.1. Approval of Full-Time Return to School
Presenter:  Dr. Paul Hillyer, Superintendent
Description: 
NARRATIVE
 
BACKGROUND
The state has relaxed distancing guidelines for students from 6 feet apart to 3 feet apart except for meals, times of physical exertion, and singing. These latter activities still require the original 6 feet of distancing. The decreased distancing requirements make it possible to return students to a longer school day. Also, if Klamath County two-week new COVID case numbers go above 136, we will not be able to start grades 6-12 back in school for a full day as the distancing requirements would go back to six feet for those grades.

 
Recommended Motion(s):  I make a motion that the KFCS Board of Education approve the schedule change for K-5 buildings and Ponderosa to return to full-day in-person instruction starting Monday, April 19th. This resolution will apply only to grades K-5 should the new cases of COVID in Klamath County go above 136 in that two-week time period. This motion, made by Board Member #1 and seconded by Board Member #2, Passed.
2.2. Approval of Student Contact Day Reduction for K-8
Description: 
NARRATIVE
 
BACKGROUND
The state has relaxed distancing guidelines for students from 6 feet apart to 3 feet apart except for meals, times of physical exertion, and singing. These latter activities still require the original 6 feet of distancing. The decreased distancing requirements make it possible to return students to school full time. In order to return to full-time, in-person instruction the administration is recommending a reduction of one student-contact day on April 16, 2021, for grades K-8 to allow teachers to prepare for the full-day in-person schedule and allows schools to transfer the necessary furniture to classrooms, gyms, cafeterias, etc.
Recommended Motion(s):  I make a motion that the KFCS Board of Education approve April 16, 2021 as a non-student contact day in order to prepare for the return to full-time, in-person instruction. This motion, made by Board Member #1 and seconded by Board Member #2, Passed.
