Brentwood Union Free School District
Student Medical Need Identification
2021-2022 School Year
Brentwood Union Free School District will provide full time, in-person instruction for all students during the 2021-2022 school year consistent with recommendations issued by the CDC, American Academy of Pediatrics, the NYS Education Department, the NYS Department of Health, and the Suffolk County Department of Health. The District will provide reasonable accommodations, where appropriate, to support students with health needs in the school environment. However, it is recognized there may be students or families in our school district with significant health needs that may be jeopardized in a school community environment. To address the needs of medically qualified students for a remote learning option, the district will be providing a remote learning option. The remote learning option will be taught by certified Brentwood Teachers and in most cases the courses will be taught in the late afternoon or early evening. The full program of courses provided by the Brentwood School District may not be available to students who are approved to participate in this program. However, all curriculum and courses provided will meet graduation requirements and are aligned with NYS Learning Standards.
The attached form is for students in the Brentwood Union Free School District with significant health needs that prevent school attendance while COVID-19, including any variant, is prevalent in our community. It is to be filled out by the student’s parent or guardian and the student’s medical provider. Upon receipt and review of the necessary documentation, the District will contact the student’s parent or guardian to discuss addressing the student’s needs for the 2021-2022 school year. Medical providers may also be contacted for clarification. Instruction may be provided by combination of synchronous and asynchronous instruction, or by traditional homebound instruction as determined by the District.
