Martha’s Vineyard public schools will continue with remote learning plans through the end of the school year with an emphasis on standards for student success in the next grade.

The all-Island school committee met Thursday evening and unanimously approved amended versions of the remote learning plan and the memorandum of agreement with the teachers’ union for the duration of the school year.

“It’s working really well. What’s working the best is the staff. They’ve gone above and beyond. They’ve immersed themselves in this new format that we’re designing as we’re going along and they’re making it work,” Vineyard schools superintendent Matthew D’Andrea said.

Nancy Dugan, director of student support services for pre-kindergarten through seventh grade, said in addition to individualized education plans, students with special needs now have an individual service plan based on the remote learning plan.

Mr. D’Andrea said the only substantive change in the teacher memorandum involves employee evaluations for this year.

The first version approved by the school committee in early April said no evaluation would be negatively affected by work done during the Covid-19 closure. The amended version approved by the committee Thursday stipulates that a joint labor management committee will meet to work out the logistics of this year’s evaluations.

The committee also set the next three school calendar years. Committee member Roxanne Ackerman wanted the option to start the upcoming school year in August to make up for lost days this year, but Mr. D’Andrea said school openings will hinge on orders from Gov. Charlie Baker.
