Georgia's Path to Recovery for K-12 Schools

posted Jun 1, 2020, 7:41 AM by Tobie Jones

Dear Commerce City Schools Community,

This morning, the Georgia Department of Public Education and the Georgia Department of Public Health released a document entitled Georgia’s Path to Recovery for K-12 Schools. This plan provides guidance - not mandates - regarding reopening school this fall. If you wish to view the document in its entirety, please click Georgia's Path to Recovery for K-12 Schools.

The guidance is based upon the following community-specific levels of COVID-19: substantial spread, minimal/moderate spread, and low/no spread. The level at which a district would be placed is determined by state and local health officials. Within each level of community spread, recommendations are then made regarding the following:

·  Preventing infection
·  Transporting students
·  Entering school buildings
·  Serving meals
·  Transitioning between classes
·  Conducting large group gatherings
·  Supporting teaching and learning
·  Protecting vulnerable populations

We are currently reviewing the results of our district survey and will maintain close communication with local and state health agencies in making decisions regarding reopening school. System and school administrators will continue to monitor the number of active cases in our community as we make decisions regarding reopening our schools in August.

Thank you for your support while we begin making preparations for this fall. We look forward to welcoming our students back as soon as we are able.
