A message from BISD Superintendent Peter Bang-Knudsen
Superintendent Peter Bang-Knudsen has a message to share with the community.
In the message, he references the revised metrics set by the state to help inform school districts’ decisions regarding in-person learning. In addition, he walks through a graph by the Institute for Disease Modeling which indicates that when schools implement COVID-19 health and safety measures (mask-wearing, social distancing, screening, etc.), the community spread of COVID-19 remains relatively similar in the hybrid learning model as a fully remote learning model. Leading to the finding that hybrid learning isn’t much riskier than full remote learning. (See PDF of the graph.) Safety is BISD’s highest priority and it will continue to be as we move forward through the school year.
