This week members of the Dedham Public Schools Reopening Task Force began meeting to gather information and feedback to draft the district’s fall reopening plan. This plan (due to be submitted on Friday, July 31) must contain plans for three different modes of learning (fully in-person, fully remote, or a hybrid plan with part in-person and part remote). The Task Force would like direct feedback from faculty, staff, and parents about your preferences for reopening this fall. Please complete this brief (3-5 minutes) Fall Reopening Survey to register your views. This survey will only remain open until midnight on Thursday, July 16. Thank you for your input and interest in the Dedham Public Schools.
Today - June 25th - the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education released its Initial Fall School Reopening Guidance. This work is based upon the current available research available at this time, and this guidance will be updated in late July. It is very comprehensive and includes a goal of safely returning as many students as possible for in-school learning in the fall. Read more by clicking the link above.

Wednesday evening the Dedham School Committee approved a revised FY21 School budget proposal. The revisions incorporated guidance provided by the Town, which requested a $500,000 reduction from the original proposal approved by the School Committee on January 29, 2020, in order to accommodate anticipated shortfalls resulting from the current pandemic crisis. The revised FY21 proposed budget request is now $42,576,992. Learn more here!
