Thank you for answering our recent survey. Most are comfortable bringing students back at the new guidance. However, only a few who are not already transporting are able to do so. That said, we are currently working on bringing back all 6th-grade students soon and will continue to look at grades 7-12. Transportation constraints and maintaining cohorts at those levels present challenges.
That said, The Holland Central School District has had all UPK-4, special education, and struggling students in person daily since the beginning of the school year. Fifth grade returned daily on February 1st. Currently, more than 2/3 of our students are in person daily. Upon review of benchmark data, student growth has been demonstrated in most all areas despite the pandemic grades UPK-12. Kudos to everyone for their hard work; teachers, students, and parent/guardians.
