During the September 29 Board of Education Special Meeting the trustees unanimously approved three agenda items.

The first item included the discussion and Board approval of a Return to Athletics Plan, presented by Director of Athletics, Health and Physical Education Robert McIntyre, outlining a soft rollout of practice plans, athlete conditioning and training. The plan does not include a return to competition and remains within New York State guidelines. Mr. McIntyre said the plan allows athletes time to recondition, emphasizes social-distancing and assists athletes with re-acclimation in an athletic setting.

The Board also approved revisions to the Code of Conduct, discussed during a September 23 First Reading. The revisions are the result of a move to a hybrid/remote teaching and learning model. According to the revisions, parents who wish to tape, record, photograph or in any way document remote learning sessions, stream instructional or extracurricular content or District-produced video/media must now request permission in advance from the classroom teacher and/or administration.

The Board also appointed and welcomed Elizabeth Doyle to the position of Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Accountability, beginning November 2, 2020. Ms. Doyle currently serves as principal of the John M. Marshall Elementary School in the East Hampton Union Free School District.

The next Board of Education meeting will be held on October 14 at 6:15 p.m.
