Government releases K-12 Education Re-Entry Plan
Published on July 6th, 2020 @ 1:17 PM
The Provincial Government has outlined its plan for a Fall return for K-12 students.
How the 2020-2021 school year will operate will depend on a number of factors, including recommendations from public health officials. In anticipation of unforeseen circumstances, the re-entry plan is divided up into three possible scenarios.
Scenario One will happen based the risk of COVID-19 transmission being very low. In this case, students will return to the classroom full time. School districts will follow health measures for student learning and extra-curricular activities, including physical distancing when possible.
Scenario Two will be initiated if the risk of COVID-19 is low to moderate. Students will then attend in-school classes partially, while continuing their learning at home through online/remote resources.
Scenario Three will have students at home 100% as the risk of transmitting COVID-19 is high. Teachers may still be required by school districts to be in attendance at school, unless that school has been ordered closed by public health.
In any case, staff and students must self-assess for the possibility of being positive for COVID-19 before they leave for school. It is recommended that parents become familiar with the screening tools.
