The New York State Education Department has issued its own guidance for the upcoming school year.
“As we prepare for schools to reopen in September, our priority must be to provide leaders with access to information about practices that have proven effective throughout the pandemic,” said Chancellor Lester W. Young. “The Department’s health and safety guide is a concise resource that will assist districts as they mitigate risks to the health and safety of students, teachers and school staff while providing flexibility for schools to address their own unique circumstances in a manner that best meets the needs of all students.”
The State Education Department's overall goals are to keep students and staff safe, respond to student needs, and maximize in person learning.
The guidance follows recommendations from the CDC.
