(Victor Valley)– The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has issued new guidance for K-12 schools, incorporating recommendations from the CDC to help local schools develop and implement plans for in-person instruction during the 2021-2022 school year.
The guidelines’ key foundational principle is that “all students must have access to safe and full in-person instruction and to as much instructional time as possible,” the CDPH announced.
Details on the State’s Safe Schools for All program can be found on the State’s website or by contacting local schools or school districts.
The State says it will continue to assess conditions on an ongoing basis and will determine no later than November 1, 2021, whether to update requirements or recommendations.
