Back to School Planning for Fall 2020

The Maine Department of Education has provided school districts with guidance and indicators for a full return to school in the Fall. The guidance can be found here.

RSU 9's Planning Process

School districts have been asked to develop three models for a safe return to school in the fall - 1) a full return to the classroom with appropriate safety precautions; 2) a hybrid model (part classroom/part distance learning); and 3) full distance learning. RSU 9 district and building administrators are developing a draft framework for each model for consideration by the Board of Directors in early August.

Classroom teachers and other staff are collaborating on the details related to safety, health, and learning. They have been broken into committees to focus their work. They are as follows:

  • Athletics and Co-Curricular 

  • Curriculum and Instruction

  • Food Service

  • Grading and Reporting

  • Health and Wellness

  • Operations and Transportation

  • Student Engagement and Motivation

  • Technology
