Remote learning did not work for everyone during the spring 2020 school closures. We know there were students who did not log on or otherwise participate in online learning opportunities. It is therefore critical for BOCES 2 to use a variety of creative methods to reach out to students and their families who did not engage in distance learning. The emphasis in reopening must be on helping students make up for the loss of instructional time and address absences before students fall behind in their learning. Initiating an educational neglect or Person in Need of Supervision (PINS) proceeding, should be a last resort; BOCES 2 will work with our local departments of social services prior to bringing any legal action against students or their families.
