  • Nome Public Schools Announces Smart Start Plan


    Nome Public Schools Families - As we plan for the start of the 2020-2021 school year, our guiding principles are

    1) Prioritize safety of students and staff

    2) Students in school for as many days possible for as long as possible and

    3) efforts must be made to ensure equitable access to education for all students.

    We must balance the educational, social and emotional needs of our students with the need for a safe and healthy school and community. As health conditions evolve and more information is available, some areas of this plan may need to change. We will work to communicate school specifics and student details as we get closer to the first day of school.

    Our planning is based on guidelines from the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development (DEED) and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHSS), and we will work closely with our health partners at Public Health and the Norton Sound Hospital to anticipate shifts between Learning Models based on community case numbers and risk of community spread.

    Please see this document (Smart Start Plan) for the Nome Public Schools Smart Start Plan for School Year 2020-2021.
