Safety Mitigation Plan 

As the 2022-2023 school year has begun, North Star Charter School, Inc. (NS) has prepared for re-opening after the sudden and unanticipated closure and subsequent re-opening with restrictions last year of all public schools in Arizona in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic. Taking into consideration concerns regarding the spread of Covid-19 and the possibility for the need to close again suddenly, we at NS have reached out to all of our stakeholders for input about the best way to re-open our school facilities for the 2022-2023 school year and the steps we should take to ensure safety of students, families, and all NS team members.

 

With the priorities of safety of everyone in our community while providing quality instruction, the administration of NS feels it is of utmost importance to inform all stakeholders about health protocols, academic options, and operational decision- making protocols as we move forward. The plan we outline in this executive summary takes into consideration the recommendations and requirements of the most recent Executive Orders from Governor Ducey and the best health and safety practices recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local public health services. We have also consulted legal counsel and sought the input of students, families, and NS facility members. All of us at NS share the collective goal to have a thoughtful reopening plan that strikes a balance between the laws of the State of Arizona, continuing health concerns posed by COVID-19 including the “delta variant” and the needs of students and our community.

NS has developed plans for three instructional and operational models that prioritize quality learning experiences for all students and safety: In-Person Learning, Hybrid, and Remote Instruction. Conditions related to COVID-19 likely will continue to be fluid through the 2022-2023 school year. We have developed this plan to be flexible enough to respond to changing health conditions and to meet the diverse needs of our students and their family preferences. This will be a living document that will be updated as needed based on the best available current information as it develops.

Despite the global challenges that have re-formed all of our lives, we at NS look forward to a successful 2022-2023 school year.

 

Sincerely,

Kurt Huzar
Chief Executive Officer
