Task Force Overview

Process

The process for ultimately arriving at our plan began this spring when we convened a panel of FA parent physicians who volunteered to help us develop our Summer Programs protocols. The group included a cross-section of healthcare physicians representing students in all three divisions. Dr. Michael Hamm, Dr. Steve Hoover, Dr. Maisara Kobaisy, Dr. Steve Squire, and Dr. Misty Leigh Williams.

In June, we divided our effort into seven working groups charged to: 1) research COVID-19-related studies (government agencies and non-government organizations); 2) review best practices for SAIS schools and national reopening of schools literature; and 3) come together to discuss the best action plans for our specific Frederica Academy needs for each of their respective groups. The recommendations of the Task Force were shared with the Leadership Team and the Board of Trustees for review.

The timeline was designed to complete the process of creating a plan by mid-July in order to secure as much timely information as possible before needing to share the plan with our families. We quickly realized that new information was being revealed every week or even every day and are grateful that we didn’t publish and republish amended plans throughout the summer. There is still so much being revealed and still unknown about the virus and how to effectively limit its transmission that we have waited to formalize and publish our plan to be as up-to-date as possible, still leaving a few weeks for families to read and digest our proposal before the start of school.
