re School Board meeting

August 4, 2020

Good afternoon,

Last evening, the Concord School Board was scheduled to hold its monthly meeting to discuss the proposals for reopening the schools for the 2020-21 school year and to act on policy and business items. Unfortunately, we experienced technical difficulties that prohibited the Board from holding the remote public meeting.

To ensure more participation from the public and in preparation for last Thursday evening’s parent forum, I decided to switch from Microsoft Teams to Microsoft Live. Thursday’s presentation went well, but last night, members of the School Board could not conduct business that allowed for discussion and exchange of ideas. As a result, Board President Jennifer Patterson postponed the meeting to Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m.

I want to apologize to all of those who attended and waited patiently as we attempted to resolve the difficulties. Today we are resolving the technical difficulties to ensure we have a smooth meeting and an opportunity for public comment on the reopening proposals.

I hope you will join us on Thursday at 6:30 pm, the link to the meeting is

From the Superintendent:

Dear Concord School District Families and Staff:

Thank you for your patience and understanding as our teams work to develop a comprehensive plan for returning our students back to school this fall. Over the past months, with active engagement from many in our school community, we have been actively planning for the re-opening of school in the fall. Within the last week we've received guidance from the Governor, Health and Human Services and the Department of education.

We are also grateful for all of the feedback we've received; we have read your messages, listened to your feedback and, to the extent possible, are incorporating it into our preparations for the coming year.

Kathleen A. Murphy
Interim Superintendent
