Evergreen Public Schools recruiting members to serve on Equity Advisory Committee - 09/08/20

As part of its on-going work on equity and inclusion practices, Evergreen Public Schools is recruiting up to a dozen community members to serve on its Equity Advisory Committee. The committee will advise district leaders in identifying and eliminating systems, policies, procedures and practices that create inequities among students and staff. 

Evergreen Public Schools is in the midst of an Equity Audit, led by newly appointed Executive Director of Equity and Inclusion Klarissa Hightower. The results of the audit are expected in November and will serve as the basis for the work plan for the committee’s work moving forward.

To apply, interested community members need to complete a short application, including an interest statement, agree to the participation requirements and return the materials by September 18. Applications are available at: https://sites.google.com/evergreenps.org/diversity-equity-inclusion

Evergreen Public Schools and Evergreen Education Association agree on 2020-21 learning delivery model - 08/28/20

Evergreen Public Schools and the Evergreen Education Association (EEA) reached an agreement on the 2020-21 school year educational learning services as impacted by COVID-19. The agreement, reached yesterday, Thursday, August 27, has been voted on by the EEA and will begin on the first day of school, Tuesday, September 1. 

Under the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), during the Remote Learning 2.0 phase, employees are encouraged to report to their assigned work location during the school day, but may work remotely from an alternative location. However, even under this phase, the school district will identify small groups of high risk and/or early learner students, as directed under state educational and health guidelines, that will need in-person support. Once students have been identified, including small groups of Kindergarten students who may start in-person as early as September 10, employees will be provided 48 hours notice to report to the work site to provide in-person instruction and support.

“We know the connection between students, families and staff is critical. We all are working to safely and equitably find ways to ensure the best learning experience. We are pleased that we will be able to start ramping up in-person instruction,” said Superintendent Mike Merlino. “We also know that parents will appreciate the consistency of set schedules and easy access to their student’s teachers and staff. This agreement provides both.”

As staff report to buildings, and small groups of students come in for instruction and services, the district has stringent health and safety guidelines in place including the wearing of masks, health screenings, physical distancing, handwashing and exclusion of individuals exhibiting any of the COVID-19 symptoms. The district also has provided all employees with options if they, or family members, fall in high-risk categories or have childcare needs.The agreement also outlines the process for the following local Clark County health guidelines, as COVID-19 cases decrease, for transitioning to a hybrid learning model. 

“While the start of the school year will not be traditional, the one thing we know we can count on is the positive connection and instruction our students rely on as delivered by our qualified and enthusiastic staff. We know this will happen-regardless of it is remotely or in-person,” said Merlino.

Evergreen Public Schools, with 25,000 students and over 3,000 staff members, is the sixth largest school district in the state, and the third largest employer in Clark County.
