The phase-in plan for reopening schools in January allows time to see if there is a surge in COVID-19 cases from the winter holidays that would impact our ability to operate. It also allows several days of student and staff testing to identify potential asymptomatic cases.
Our hope is that conditions will allow us to begin the second semester as follows:
Monday, January 4th, 2021: Staff Development/Preparation Day-NO SCHOOL for students
Tuesday, January 5th, 2021:DEADLINE to register for the Estes Park Remote Learning Academy for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. (For more information, please contact Mary Barron as soon as possible.)
Tuesday, January 5th through Friday, January 15th, 2021: Remote Learning for all grades, all schools, including Estes Park Remote Learning Academy. Boys and Girls Club and special services/small group offerings will continue to be available until in-person learning resumes.
Monday, January 18, 2021: No School-Dr. King Day
Tuesday, January 19, 2021: PK-8th Grades: In-Person Learning begins (Remote learning continues for 9th-12th Grades through January 22nd, 2021)
Monday, January 25, 2021: 9th-12th Grades: In-Person Learning begins
Educator Effectiveness Evaluation System Annually, the Estes Park School District R-3 uses RANDA, an online Colorado State Model Evaluation System, to measure educator effectiveness. This evaluation system is used to train relevant personnel, including designees as needed, to evaluate principals, teachers and special service providers utilitizing the Colorado Model Educator Evaluation process, tools and recources. This includes an overview of requirements for each type of personnel, the logistics and process of actual scoring each rubric for preofessional practices, use of inter-rater agreement activities, calculation of measures of student learning, and internal district requirements, and deadlines.
At a regular board of education meeting on June 24, 2019, the Board of Education adopted and approved the continuance of use for this system.
Annual Assurance is required by July 1st of each school year.
