GaDOE guidance for safe return to in-person instruction

The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) and the Georgia Department of Public Health released a document entitled Georgia’s Path to Recovery for K – 12 Schools. The purpose of the document is to assist schools in developing a safe return to in-person instruction in fall 2020. The guidance is based upon the following community-specific levels of COVID-19: substantial spread, minimal/moderate spread, and low/no spread. State and local health officials will determine the level at which a district would be placed. Within each level of community spread, recommendations are provided for school districts to follow. The plan addresses practicing prevention, transporting students, entering school buildings, serving meals, transitioning between classes and spaces within the school, conducting large group gatherings, supporting teaching and learning, and protecting vulnerable populations in areas of substantial, minimal to moderate, and low to no spread of COVID-19. Baldwin County School Superintendent Dr. Noris Price is forming a local task force to help develop guidance on how to reopen Baldwin County schools safely for students, faculty, and staff. The task force is made up of representatives from the school district, parents, businesses, community members, health care professionals, local emergency and law enforcement personnel, faith-based organizations, civic and non-profit organizations, and representatives from all three local colleges/universities. During the month of June and July, the task force will be looking at different options to identify the best approach to reopen schools for the 2020-2021 school year.
