Department of Education COVID-19 Handbook Vol 1

Abstract:

To reopen safely in the COVID-19 pandemic and maximize the use of in-person instruction, schools need sufficient resources as well as strong State and local public health measures that everyone follows. Consistent implementation of effective  strategies for mitigating the transmission of COVID-19 during all school-related activities is critical for reopening schools – and keeping them open. It is also important to recognize that communities of color and people with disabilities/chronic conditions have borne a disproportionate burden of illness and serious outcomes from COVID-19 and require additional considerations. It is essential that all schools and students receive the resources, technical assistance, and other supports necessary to plan and implement comprehensive mitigation strategies and that district and school leaders and educators consistently engage parents and community partners throughout the process – paying close attention to communities who have borne a disproportionate burden of COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that students who are at increased risk of severe illness (including those with special healthcare needs) or who live with people at increased risk should be given the option of virtual instruction regardless of the mode of learning offered. These options should likewise be extended to staff who have a household member with a high-risk condition or who are at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
