As College Prep has considered and designed its plan, the School has been guided by three principles:
Prioritize the health and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff.
College Prep will ensure that our hygiene- and health-related policies are research-based, clearly communicated, effectively implemented, and diligently enforced. Our goal is to reduce the risk of virus transmission in order both to support our school community, and to help mitigate the broader health risks faced by our region.
Provide for continuity of teaching and learning.
College Prep believes in the pursuit of academic excellence and that the optimal learning environment is one in which students are learning from their teachers and fellow students in person. While health circumstances may necessitate accommodations and adaptations, our goal is to support our students’ learning and development as seamlessly as possible.
Values matter, especially during a crisis. They permit us to navigate complexity and compel us to reflect on our relationships with, and obligations to, others. Most important, they inform our decisions and actions. As we respond to dynamic circumstances, we will make decisions that support our students’ needs and our school’s distinctive mission and culture.
