SCBS School Reopening Plan

On Tuesday, August 4th, the Springfield Ball Charter School Board of Directors approved a plan to a school-wide return to school on August 17th remotely.  This recommendation was made to the Board by the administration, who upon reviewing local health and safety data, felt this was the safest way for our students to return to learn.  This was a very difficult decision as we know many of our students were looking forward to an in-person educational experience. Supporting families will be our top priority and we will revisit the COVID condition in our community regularly.  Please view the attached plan.  We will continue to communicate with parents with more details regarding technology pick-up, daily schedules, and support services.
