CLOVIS (KSMX)- Clovis Municipal Schools’ elementary teacher, Silvia Miranda, has been selected to serve on the New Mexico School Reentry Task Force.
According to a release from the New Mexico Department of Public Education (NMPED): “The Task Force, convened by Education Secretary Ryan Stewart, is made up of stakeholders who meet virtually to discuss the myriad and complex issues of returning to school safely.
“The public health situation is still changing too quickly for us to develop a single plan for return to school,” said Education Secretary Ryan Stewart. “We’ll be looking to our School Reentry Task Force to contribute their perspective and help shape a number of contingency plans for a safe return to school.
Those plans will likely include in-person instruction, continued distance learning and hybrid options.”
Secretary Stewart has also encouraged all New Mexican families to complete an online Family Education Survey to help inform the Task Force.
“With our Continuous Learning Plans, educators, students and families were asked to quickly adapt to an unfamiliar model. We know that there were some bumps along the road, and we want to learn what worked well and what needs to be improved for the way forward,” Stewart said.
The New Mexico Public Education Department is asking families to complete an online survey about their experiences with continuous learning during the school closing period triggered by the COVID- 19 pandemic.
Survey responses will help school districts better meet community needs and help the New Mexico School Reentry Task Force shape plans for reopening public schools in the state.
Families will answer both open- and close-ended questions about their child’s level of engagement in school, the family’s level of satisfaction with their school’s expectations and supports, their school’s ability to meet the child’s individual needs, and their communication preferences.
