Reopening Plan

Professional Development

We will provide a professional development program that will involve staff, families, and students. The training will use a combination of online curated content along with locally developed content to capture the essence and needs of our school. The shortened school days will ensure time is built in daily for professional development for all of our stakeholders.

The training will be focused on both health and safety protocols and instructional/service models, and provided to Shore staff, families, and students. Our goal is to provide a consistent framework that we can all use fluently and effectively. Past experiences and professional training have not prepared students, families, or staff for a school year like the one ahead of us, so we begin on equal footing. Shore will provide a framework that defines the protocols, methods, and tools we use. That doesn’t mean we can’t use the wide array of tools and techniques available in today’s market, but that the defined framework is the baseline everyone needs to understand and use at a minimum in our environment.


In the early weeks of the school year, Shore nursing professionals will provide much of the training to ALL staff and students in the use of infection control and mitigation strategies. (Social distancing, handwashing, mask-wearing, will be practiced until they are habits.) These are appended to this plan and are based on and will change with recommendations and guidance provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Massachusetts Public Health and Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Most importantly, the entire Shore community must commit to the discipline and responsibility it will take to remain engaged in and focused on health and safety practices. When changes need to be made every person involved with Shore must speak up and help to resolve concerns or renew our attention to the simple actions that may have a huge impact.
