Ed Affairs Committee Presentation January 2022

During the January 18 Educational Affairs meeting, health, safety and wellness were discussed. On January 11, the Montgomery County Office of Public Health revised the recommended COVID-19 mitigation tactics recommended for school districts. These changes impacted CSD’s “Test To Stay” program, assurance testing for unvaccinated staff, and contact tracing. The implementation of a “Mask to Stay” program was also discussed. The district's health and safety plan has been revised to reflect these modifications. For the wellness portion of the presentation, CSD Director of Student Services Jessica Keene talked about the various in-school and out-of-school resources employed that address staff and student social and emotional well-being. Through the partnership with Effective School Solutions (ESS), CSD has been able to offer clinical support at Elkins Park School and parent/guardian and staff professional development. CSD has been utilizing the Second Step curriculum in its K-8 buildings, and is continuing its partnerships with Aldersgate and Lakeside. The next Educational Affairs Committee meeting is Tuesday, February 14 at 7 p.m. via Zoom. Video>
