Discussion:  Darus Mettler (SpEd) - Special Education Staff have been involved in Zoom meetings, group Zoom meetings, Zoom meetings with parents, grading papers, Special Education paperwork including progress notes, Individual Education Plans, Prior Written Notices, and other required paperwork. Staff have also been involved in trainings and professional development. Early childhood staff was in a file review, ESU 7 did a great job. Last words from the reviewer were "absolutely best process in the state of Nebraska". Early Childhood team is incredible. 

Marci Ostmeyer (PD) - Staff continues to do current work but from a remote location, such as adding new teachers to the database, managing media resources, conference registrations, booking Zoom rooms, providing materials to teachers, and other tasks that can be completed remotely. Our staff members are able to do a significant amount of their jobs while they are at home. Professional Development staff created a website with Zoom tutorials with over 2000 views on how to facilitate Zoom meetings. Our coaches still continue to meet with principles and teachers. 

Dan Ellsworth (Tech) - Tech Department had to find a way to connect students and teachers outside of the building that were not used to technology. Zoom accounts went from approximately 40-50 before the pandemic to 1,400 during the pandemic. Nationally, Zoom went from 20,000 users to 20 million during this crisis. Tech is currently planning for summer support. Tech staff continues to work on databases, a new website, firewall updates, and other tech projects. 

Administrator Polk stated that some decisions have been made for the summer.  Summer is typically a 4-6 week event here for the Cen7ter Kids. We are going to do remote learning for summer school and the decision had to be made last week. Special Education Director Mettler added that the extended school year is to help students maintain their skills, not to learn additional skills or catch up on what they may have missed during the pandemic. Administrator Polk added that ESU 7 is at a Level 2 Closure, the most restricted closure that we have. Given the information from the health department, Governor, and commissioners, ESU 7 determined a Level 2 Closure means 2-3 people on campus. We are moving to Level 1 Closure on June 1, 2020. We will continue to be closed to the public. We will authorize 10 people in the building each day. Office hours will be 8am-4pm starting June 1. Administrator Polk is not sure how long the Level 1 Closure will be in place, it depends on what the health department and Governor says. Administrator Polk will meet with the Directors every two weeks. At this point, we plan on holding the June Board Meeting on campus.
