We are starting school remotely in September and we know it feels like we are launching into choppy waters yet again. While the District, our schools, our teachers and our families are more prepared and ready this time around, we all still face many of the same challenges we faced in the spring. But, with some collective strategizing and coordinated action, we’re confident that together we can build some life rafts to navigate these waters with greater confidence and support.
MFEE is working with local partners to anticipate the most pressing needs of our students and families and activate community resources to address them. We are moving quickly, efficiently, and transparently to serve our schools, students, and families.
We want to share our ideas and get your input on them.
MFEE is currently working on plans to:
Support community partners and serve our most vulnerable students by creating and sustaining a small network of Community Learning Partnerships: full-time in-person supervision and remote learning support for our district’s most under-resourced elementary and middle school students.
Build a Montclair-specific online hub for families to find other families who are interested in being part of small in-person groups for learning, socialization, enrichment, or child care.
Curate and host parent and caregiver support sessions throughout the school year - topics will respond to the needs of our parent and caregiver community, such as supporting learning at home, managing stress for kids and parents, and boosting social connections.
We need your voice. Join us to hear what we’re exploring, provide feedback, and join others in small group discussions.
