COVID-19 Guidance For Safe Schools

The 2020-21 school year has looked far different than previous school years. With COVID-19 infection rates fluctuating across the country, schools have chosen between in-person learning, hybrid schedules, and fully remote learning instructional models. State government officials in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington DC have released considerations to safely operate schools. In general, these considerations are non-mandated guidance, though many include mandated requirements for all students and staff. All state guidance documents acknowledge that local school districts should have flexibility to make decisions to accommodate local needs and some school districts may have rules that are more stringent than the state guidance.
