As we plan and prepare for a new 2020-2021 school year, the safety of SE Academy students, families, and our staff is our top priority. We must do everything we can to minimize risk, and so we are following the guidance and recommendation of local, state and federal government and health agencies.
We are aware that the COVID-19 situation changes rapidly, so we will send regular updates via e-mail and website/social media to keep you informed of our plans moving forward.

The District's Re-Entry Task Force held its first weekly meeting on Thursday, May 28, and has been meeting every week to discuss key factors related to the safe reopening of schools and providing advice to our SCS planning teams. We are committed to transparency as we work through this important process, so you can find updates from every task force meeting by clicking the link below.

UPDATE: Re-Entry Task Force Meeting 5
Thursday, June 25, 2020
After four weeks analyzing key factors for reopening schools safely in the fall, Task Force members met with District leaders to begin developing specific recommendations for our S.A.F.E. re-entry plan. The group received an update on the week of re-entry listening sessions, which were seen by more than 50,000 people, and discussed preliminary results of the re-entry survey, which was completed by over 15,000 families. All input received will be factored into the Task Force's final recommendations.
The group revisited planning considerations from the past month and re-ranked their goals and priorities for the reopening of schools.
All districts in the state are required to submit their full re-entry plans (or continuous learning models) to the Tennessee Department of Education for approval, so recommendations will be finalized in the coming weeks with a goal of presenting a state-approved plan to families, staff and the community by mid-July.
