Notice on COVID-19 - Updated Reopening Plan
July 28, 2020

Literacy Services of Wisconsin aligns much of our programming calendar with Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS). Per the recent public health guidelines and resultant decisions made by MPS, LSW is extending Phase One of our reopening through the end of December 2020. The overall sequence of LSW’s reopening plan remains true to the version released in June, however, Phase Two will not commence as initially intended on September 14th. LSW’s instructional services will remain online or in a virtual format during the entirety of the fall term. One-on-one in-person appointments for students and volunteers will continue to be scheduled on a limited basis while staff are on-site for their scheduled workday(s).

Some additional updates:

  • LSW staff are working directly with students to complete assessments on an individual basis
    Enrollment for fall is ongoing and currently underway
  • LSW volunteers will have access to additional volunteer opportunities that were not previously available during the spring
  • LSW will be offering a professional development bootcamp this fall for staff, volunteers, and friends of literacy to encourage us all to learn and grow together

Please refer to our June reopening plan for the details on each phase. Aside from the noted dates, the general plan remains the same. LSW will send out an update in late November or early December with our plans for spring.
