Kent County Public Schools is devoted to staying firmly anchored in excellence. We remain deeply committed to ensuring that every child receives a quality education that promotes equity, a rigorous and engaging curriculum, and offers a safe and nurturing learning environment. Careful consideration has been taken in developing the reopening plan for our district. The instructional models will depend on which Phase of Reopening is permitted. Each model has been thoroughly reviewed and has included input from stakeholder groups and then reviewed by taskforce groups to ensure the following:

  • Promoting the safety, welfare, and health of students, employees, and families.
  • Mitigate educational inequities by creating structures and supports that respond to challenges faced by various populations as informed by data
  • Providing high-quality teaching and learning to all students.
  • Prioritizing the social-emotional well-being of students and staff.
