The DeKalb County School District will continue preparing its road map for bringing students and teachers back to classrooms for the upcoming school year, district officials said after state officials announced guidance for K-12 school systems.
“The DeKalb County School District will now align its framework plan with the state’s guidance,” Superintendent Ramona Tyson said.
“The District appreciates the fact that (the Georgia Department of Education) recognizes local school districts need the authority and flexibility to meet varying complexities.”
Should the coronavirus’ spread be considered substantial when school is set to begin, for example, school buildings would close and be disinfected, with districts implementing distance learning and delivering meals to students.
Tyson said recently she was waiting for the state’s recovery guidance to consider it with other recommendations the district has taken from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health department officials.
