  • Survey: Wheatland-Chili Family Input for the Reopening of Schools Fall 2020

    The COVID-19 pandemic required significant action and disruption from our traditional face-to-face instructional model. As a result, Wheatland-Chili has created a brief survey to better understand the perspectives and level of concern our families have regarding the reopening of schools to students this fall. The information and data gathered from this survey will help the district best prepare and develop plans, protocols, and safety measures. Our top priority is the health, safety, and welfare of our students, staff, and families. Thank you for sharing feedback on these topics as they relate to the reopening of schools in the fall.

  • Monroe County Council of School Superintendents Stand Together Against Racism

    We, the superintendents of Monroe County school districts, stand together against racism. We acknowledge that discrimination exists in all of our communities. We see it in the bias that exists within our districts. We see it in the trauma that hatred and oppression inflict on our students and families. We see it in the educational inequities that continue to perpetuate glaring disparities in student outcomes. We know that the fight against racism, oppression and hate cannot fall solely on families of color or within the confines of only some school districts. We all must lead this transformation together.
