COVID-19: Supporting our districts virtually!

Big picture
Even though the schools are closed and the desks are empty we, at Monroe2-Orleans BOCES, are working to help keep our teachers teaching and our students learning.

A letter from Marijo Pearson, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Professional Development

Dear Colleagues,


During these unprecedented times, The Office of Curriculum, Instruction and Professional Development would like you to know we are here to support you!


During the school closure, we would like to offer forums designed as a way to foster collaboration across districts. We will begin our regional collaboration sessions next week. See the chart below! No need to register just put the time/date on your calendar and log into the session using the link provided! Our instructional specialists are excited to be able to support you virtually!


In this enews edition you will also find the link to the Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES online learning resources and the link to the NYSED website for COVID-19 continuity of learning resources.


Stay Healthy and Safe!
