Board Establishes COVID-19 Committees

During its regular Board of Education meeting on Aug. 10, the Dublin City Schools Board of Education established five COVID-19 committees that will set the District’s direction and will work to keep the community informed as we begin the 2020-21 school year. 

As you may know, Dublin City Schools will begin the 2020-21 school year in remote learning mode until Sept. 8 when the Orientation to the Hybrid Learning Model (50% student capacity) will begin with the intention of being in the full Hybrid Learning Model beginning Sept. 21.

Led by the elected members of the Dublin City Schools Board of Education, these committees will work with one another to keep the community informed about the District’s metrics, procedures, extracurricular activities, wellness and the latest health information from local health authorities.

“These committees will take the lead in keeping the community informed regarding the latest COVID-19 information,  and how that information impacts the operations of Dublin City Schools,” said Superintendent Dr. Todd Hoadley

Data / metrics committee

The purpose of this committee will be to identify and track Key Performance Indicators that will be used by the Board of Education in deciding how to advance the District from Orientation mode to full Hybrid mode.

Protocols Committee

This committee will assist in establishing and refining protocols such as temperature checks, symptom screenings, and facilities and bus protocols.

Extra-curricular Committee

The District has worked with our athletic program throughout the summer to keep students as safe as possible. The extracurricular committee will ensure proper medical safeguards are followed during extracurricular activities, including athletics. 

Wellness and Mental Health Committee

The mental health and well being of our students and staff is one of the District’s top priorities. This committee will focus on the mental health and well-being supports the District can provide and facilitate for faculty/employees, students and parents.

Community Education Committee

This committee will keep the community informed regarding the latest medical information from Franklin County and Frankly County Public Health officials. 

The committees will begin their work in the near future and will be reporting out to the community at future Board of Education meetings.
