The Department of Public Instruction expects schools to reopen in the fall and will provide guidance next week on best practices.
In a message to district administrators on June 12, the department said it “expects changes to school operations to address risk factors to control the spread of COVID-19, the educational needs of students who are not able to return to school due to health concerns, and changing conditions due to the pandemic.”
A bill the Legislature passed this spring requires the agency to release the guidance by June 30. Friday’s message said it will be posted June 22.
DPI said “this guidance is to provide considerations for district and school leaders to plan and implement a safe, efficient, and equitable return to school.”
