GLCPS will return to in-person learning on April 5, 2021 with the launch of the school's Hybrid Learning Plan. Parents have been notified and are asked to complete the Hybrid Learning Survey for each of their students. The survey asks families if they will send their students to school or will continue using the Remote Learning Model.
Global Learning Charter Public School will tentatively begin its Hybrid Learning Model on Monday, March 22, 2021. Executive Director Stephen Furtado, Ph.D., shared the new information with parents in a letter, a day after discussing the plan with GLCPS staff. In the letter, Dr. Furtado noted that the number of Covid 19 cases continues to decline across the state. He emphasized that the school would launch its hybrid plan only if the staff has had sufficient opportunity to receive both doses of the vaccine or New Bedford remains in the "green" range for four consecutive weeks.
"Therefore I am cautioning everyone that the projected date could change if the above criteria do not occur," Dr. Furtado wrote in the letter.
A team from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education will attend the February meeting of the Secondary Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC). The state education officials will provide an overview of the Tiered Focused Monitoring progress for parents. The SEPAC meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, February 24th from 6:00 to 7:00 PM. It will be held virtually on Zoom. GLCPS Parents will be sent the link prior to the meeting via the Remind application. For more information, contact GLCPS Special Education Director Amie Fernandes at email@example.com.
Thursday, January 28th, 2021, GLCPS will be hosting a Virtual Enrollment Open House. All current and prospective students and their families are invited to attend this hour-long program which begins at 6:00 PM. During this event, our staff and students, led by Executive Director Stephen Furtado, Sr. and Principal Pires, will give an overview of the school, provide a student’s perspective of what it’s like to attend GLCPS, and present student work.
