Dear GLOBE Community, 

Something exciting is coming! The GLOBE Academy's new website will launch this week giving our community even more connection to what's happening at GLOBE and we couldn't be more excited. Be on the lookout! Also, don't forget to subscribe to the new board meeting channel on YouTube where you'll be able to keep up with GLOBE Board developments.

In June, Governor Brian P. Kemp and State School Superintendent Richard Woods of the Georgia Department of Education issued a joint statement that Georgia will submit a waiver request to the U.S. Department of Education for the suspension of high-stakes testing and accountability for the 2020-2021 school year - specifically the 2020-2021 Georgia Milestones assessments and the College and Career Readiness Index ( CCRPI ) and the report card (school and district rating systems), in order to allow schools to focus on the remediation, growth and safety of students as they return to full instruction this fall.

See Georgia's Proposed Waiver Request to the United States Department of Education.

Public comment and feedback is a requirement of the process to request a federal waiver. Please take a few moments to provide your input regarding Georgia seeking a waiver from mandatory assessment and accountability requirements for the 2020-2021 school year.

This survey will close at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, July 10 .

We appreciate your input.
GLOBE Reopening Plan
Although it feels like summer has just begun, we’re sure many of you are starting to think about the upcoming school year in August. We will keep you up to date on our preparations and decisions as they unfold in the coming weeks. 

GLOBE’s leadership team is meeting weekly to review and discuss guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE), and DeKalb County School District (DCSD) on school opening for SY20-21. Because many of our families have children attending both The GLOBE Academy and other DCSD schools, we intend to align our school opening plan with DCSD as much as possible. 

Given the ongoing evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are actively preparing for all three scenarios: returning to school in-person, returning using a hybrid of in-person and online learning, and beginning the year fully online. We will share information with you as we learn more throughout the summer. 

As we continue to monitor the latest guidance, we are focusing our efforts on preparing our buildings to receive students and staff and on preparing class schedules for all potential reopening scenarios. Building preparations include creating signage to promote social distancing and healthy practices as well as enacting heightened standards for cleaning and disinfecting.

Please continue to review our Weekly Reminders for updates on school opening for SY20-21.
