Carroll's 2020-2021 Academic Year Plan Goals

Carroll's Leadership Planning Team has set forth the following 4 goals in planning for the academic year ahead and in determining whether to operate on-campus or remotely:

  1. Health and Safety: Maintaining the health and safety of our students, their families, our employees, and our community
  2. Give Each Child (GEC): Providing an individualized, guided, and robust education that meets the unique needs of each student
  3. Equity: Ensuring that the plan is equitable across our entire community and being fully aware and sensitive to the variety of challenges many are facing during the pandemic
  4. Flexibility & Adaptability: Designing our program with tremendous flexibility so that we can adjust quickly to any changes in pandemic conditions and per the guidance of federal, state, and local health agencies

Carroll School Priorities

The health and well-being of the Carroll community is the top priority as we plan for the in-person learning that is so beneficial to our students. To do this in the safest possible way, we are considering every aspect of how to operate the school in our plan, some of which is still evolving. Below are some of the key decisions made so far.

Carroll's Opening Plan

What is an opening plan? It is not a plan for the long-term. It is an opportunity to get our students on campus earlier than most schools. It is an opportunity to study our plans for on-campus education before jumping into the water with both feet. Our opening plan introduces our children to their teachers in-person. In addition, we will kick off our remote program earlier than most schools. We think our opening plan is a careful, powerful, and significant approach to beginning the school year.
