During a three-day orientation program, 14 new teachers were welcomed to the District by the Board of Education and administration on Aug. 19-21. The purpose of the orientation program was to familiarize the educators with the workings of the district and the pandemic protocol put into place for the opening of the 2020-2021 school year.

In addition to a warm welcome by Assistant Superintendent for Personnel and General Administration Nelson Briggs, the new faculty learned about the district’s technology, employee benefits and payroll and took a tour of their own buildings. They also participated in presentations and workshops focused on implicit bias, social emotional learning, reaching parents, creating a culturally responsible learning environment and stress management. Most importantly for the coming year, the district also provided presentations on social distancing and PPE, and distance learning.
