  • MCSD Continuity of Operations Plan

    On September 7, 2020, Governor Cuomo signed into law Chapter 168 of the Laws of 2020 that requires public employers, including public school districts, to adopt a continuation of operations plan in the event that the governor declares a public health emergency involving communicable disease. The legislation (S.8617-B/ A.10832) amends subdivision 2 of section 2801-a of New York Education Law to require that District Safety Plans include protocols for responding to a declared public health emergency involving a communicable disease that are “substantially consistent” with the provisions of section 27-c of the Labor Law .  Pursuant to this law, the District's Emergency Continuation of Operations Plan is available here for public comment for 30 days.  If you would like to comment on the District's Emergency Continuation of Operations Plan, please email your comments to our District Clerk, Melody LaRocca at laroccam@mahopac.org.
