631 – Continuity of Education Policy


PACT Charter School

Original Creation Date: August 2020
Last Approved By: PACT Charter School Board of Directors
Last Approved Date: August 6, 2020
Year Reviewed: 2020-2021



The purpose of this policy is to establish expectations and policies to ensure the continuity of education when events cause a significant disruption to standard educational operations.

Policy Statement

PACT Charter School will follow guidelines from state officials when events cause a significant disruption to standard operations. Administration will work within those guidelines to develop alternative operations and learning plans. These plans will be approved by the school board with the understanding that minor adjustments may need to be made by administration. Plans will be developed with a goal to maintain as much similarity to standard education operations as possible. When the school is in an event that causes significant disruption to standard educational operations, policies and procedures outlined in the operations and learning plans will supersede established policies when there is a conflict.


In the event of a pandemic, PACT will follow guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) to determine the scenario for learning (i.e. in-person, hybrid, distance learning). As the situation changes, administration will work with state and local health officials to determine whether there is a need to change the scenario for learning. Decisions will be made with the goal of having students come to the building for in-person learning to the extent possible while following guidelines from MDH and MDE. Administration will evaluate data and trends when deciding the model for education and will take into account stability to allow for teachers and families to plan.
