Community webinar regarding 2020-‘21 school year set for July 30

The event, to be held over Zoom, starts at 5:30 p.m.

Community members are being encouraged by the Mercer Island School District (MISD) to attend a Zoom webinar Friday, July 30, to hear more about the 2020-‘21 school year.

The hour-long meeting, set to begin at 5:30 p.m., will see a discussion around remote learning and the rest of the Learning Forward Plan being used to map out the upcoming school year.

The webinar follows the July 24 confirmation by MISD Superintendent Donna Colosky that she was recommending the school year begin fully remotely.

The first day of school district-wide is slated to be Sept. 2.

Public input will be emphasized Aug. 11, when the school board will be holding a “linkage” session to garner feedback at 5 p.m.

The link for the webinar is https://mercerislandschools.zoom.us/j/99856769251?pwd=Y0hwVlhIY0g1RkdvQ0drM29Oa2lPdz09. Those who are not able to attend should be able to access the meeting recording after the 30th on the school board meeting video archive.
