2020-21 Superintendents' Checklist

Dear Superintendents and Charter School Leaders,

As a service to district leaders each year, we provide a checklist of tasks, notifications, and best practices that school districts should be aware of and/or complete throughout the year. We are currently updating this year’s checklist to reflect the numerous regulatory changes related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020-21 checklist will be posted in October 2020.

Questions or suggestions for improving the checklist should be directed to Helene Bettencourt, associate commissioner for communication and planning.
