COOPERSTOWN N.Y.- The Cooperstown Central School District held a virtual meeting Friday afternoon to inform parents of the district's reopening plans.

This was the third of three meetings for Cooperstown.

Cooperstown Schools announced this year the district would be opening remotely, followed by a planned transition to a hybrid model.

  • The first day of remote instruction will be Wednesday September 9, 2020.
  • The planned transition to the hybrid model will be on Monday October 5, 2020.

The district plans to use Google Classroom and Zoom through October 2nd, and then after that transitioning all students to physically attending school two days a week.

Dr. William Crankshaw, the Cooperstown CSD Superintendent of Schools says that the district is one of several different schools in the region opening remotely.

“I would say the differences between fall and spring remote instruction are going to be vastly different. You’re going to see that happening very differently, because our teachers are now trained, and they’re definitely prepared to work in a way, that’s been carefully thought out, but that will also continue to evolve as we learn better ways to reach our students remotely.” said Crankshaw.

While Cooperstown pland to begin remote instruction on September 9th, any future decisions to return to remote learning will depend on things including:

  • The number of students and/or staff for whom attendance is limited due to illness or association with coronavirus.
  • An order by the Otsego County or New York State Departments of health, or Governor Cuomo to close.
  • The closure of other schools and programs Cooperstown relies on for providing services to students (Example: BOCES)
  • Transportation
  • Cleaning Supplies, personal-protective-equipment (PPE), or other supplies necessary to maintain a healthy living environment
