MTRS Reentry Plans

On March 13, Gov. Charlie Baker ordered a statewide school closure to combat the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). At that time, the MTRS administration, in conjunction with guidance counselors and the director of curriculum and instruction, considered how to move forward during the school closure. Considerations included implementation of remote learning; closing grades for the year; and identifying ways to provide “recovery education” to help close learning gaps as a result of the closure. This document addresses our district’s unique circumstances and challenges we face with remote learning while also providing an equitable solution.
