    Dear Classified and Licensed Staff Members,

    Many thanks to those of you who joined Superintendent Perera and her Leadership Team for the Staff Key Communicators Meeting on Tuesday, November 17. We appreciated having you attend!!

    During the meeting, we shared:

    -Information about eGBSD, our comprehensive distance learning program
    -The school health metrics we're monitoring to determine when students can be brought back into our buildings
    -The behind the scenes work underway to prepare to resume in-person instruction.  

    In addition, staff members participated in two Thoughtexchange (crowdsourcing/feedback tool) discussions. 

    The first one took place online prior to the meeting. The discussion centered on the question: “What are your thoughts and questions about comprehensive distance learning in the GBSD?”

    The second Thoughtexchange discussion took place live during the meeting. The discussion question was: “What are your thoughts and questions about resuming in-person instruction?”

    As the superintendent shared in her November 18 email, we want to share with you the top 10 thoughts shared that received the highest ratings from participants. They are attached.

    Please know that the thoughts shared and rated are being shared with the District’s Leadership Team to aid them in their planning when it comes to comprehensive distance learning and in-person instruction.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to use our online listening system, “Let’s Talk” for a prompt response from an administrative team member.

    Thank you again for all you do for our students and our schools!
