Governor Ducey's Announcement and Governing Board Meeting Reminder

June 29, 2020 - Governor Ducey's Announcement and Governing Board Meeting Reminder

This afternoon, June 29, Governor Doug Ducey announced the start date for Arizona schools in-person will be pushed back to August 17, 2020.  For the most up to date information regarding this announcement please visit the Office of the Arizona Governor’s website.  As a district, we will be reviewing the Executive Order from the Governor's Office and what this means for our plans for the beginning of the school year.  Please expect more detailed information in due course.

As we have already informed our parents and families, our task force plan for beginning the new school year will be presented to our Governing Board tomorrow evening, June 30, at 6:30pm.  As of today, our plan consists of three learning models that our students and families can choose from.  Please be assured that this plan has been designed with flexibility at its core so that we can respond to the exact scenario we find ourselves when school begins.  We will, of course, continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation and as we receive new information we will continue to make decisions in the best interests of our students, families, and staff.   Following the meeting, tomorrow night, more detailed information will be available on our website.  Please expect frequent updates via email, our website www.gilbertschools.net and on social media.  

Thank you again for your ongoing support as we work together to support the health of our students, families, and the wider community.

Sincerely,

Shane McCord, Ed.D.

Superintendent

Gilbert Public Schools
