Return to Learn Plan
On July 21, 2021 the Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan for 2021-22 school year was discussed at the Board of Education meeting.
On November 1, 2021, the Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan for the 2021-22 school year was published to the Troy 30-C School District website in English and Spanish. Along with the plan, surveys in English and Spanish were posted to gather public comment. Invitations to review the plan and take the survey were shared through email communication from the Superintendent and posted on the district’s social media accounts.
Survey results were presented to the Board of Education at the January 19, 2022 Board of Education meeting.
Survey results indicate that stakeholders would like funds to be prioritized for additional staff, social emotional and mental well-being, special populations, facility improvements, and technology equipment and access.
