U.S. Secretary of Education Names New Roots Charter School a 2021 U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon School
New York State Education Department has honored New Roots Charter School as a New York State Green Ribbon School
New Roots Charter School is planning for one week of remote instruction following each of the two upcoming holiday breaks
New Roots Charter School will proactively transition to entirely remote learning for one week after the Thanksgiving and winter breaks, according to Superintendent Tina Nilsen-Hodges.
In a memo to members of the SUNY Board of Trustees dated October 6, 2020, Susan Miller Carello, Executive Director of the SUNY Charter Schools Institute, reported that New Roots Charter School has met the terms of its probation, stating “the remedial action plan contained mandatory terms and conditions, which the school has met, and continues to provide the Institute with timely reporting as requested.”
The New Roots teacher leadership team planned extensively for supporting students in learning and understanding the scientific, social and emotional reasons for the new safety protocols. This has resulted in 100% compliance, not in response to new rules and mandates, but in the spirit that truly reflects the New Roots Commitment to Respect Yourself, Respect Others, and Respect Our Environment.
“On-site and remote classes at New Roots Charter School will begin on September 9, 2020 as scheduled,” Superintendent Tina Nilsen-Hodges announced today.
