From the Superintendent - Fall Reopening Survey

July 17, 2020


Dear Pioneer School District Families and Staff,

Our district has been diligently working toward development of a plan for safely reopening our schools in Fall 2020.  For the past two weeks, our administrative team has been hosting Reopening School Advisory Committee meetings with key stakeholders and volunteers that include parents, staff, and community members. The committees have done an excellent job of providing feedback, insights, and suggestions for our district plan. After twelve meetings where we have gathered input from committee members, it is now your turn to contribute. 

To make sure that all voices are heard in the development process for our reopening schools plan, we are sending a survey to all staff, families, and students who are in 3rd – 8th grade.  These surveys will provide district leaders with additional information for the development of our plan.  Our district goal is to provide the Pioneer family with the best possible plan to meet the learning needs of our students while ensuring required safety standards for all students and staff.  A link to the survey will be sent via text, email and will be posted on our website.  Please complete the survey by July 23, 2020.

Our district will have a draft plan completed for submission to the Pioneer School Board on July 28th for board approval.  Following this action, the adopted plan will be forwarded to OSPI for final approval.  Once final approval is granted, the plan will be communicated to staff, families, and the community.  Providing a safe, secure, and quality learning environment for every member of the Pioneer family is our highest priority. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we develop the best plan possible for our Fall 2020 reopening.
