Over the past several months, the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) engaged with educational leaders and other stakeholders regarding reopening for the 2020-21 school year.
This guidance applies to school entities which include: school districts, charter schools, regional charter schools, cyber charter schools, career and technical centers (CTCs), and intermediate units (IUs). Given the dynamic nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, PDE’s guidance will evolve as further research, data and resources become available.
Every day counts as LTSD plans to reopen and resume in-person instruction. And every day, we are learning more about how to do that safely. Our plan will continue to reflect the best available data and evidence on maximizing educational opportunities while mitigating disease spread.
Our Health and Safety Plan recognizes that each school entity is unique and that all plans for the upcoming year must reflect local needs based on available data and will serve as the local guidelines for all school reopening activities. As with all school emergency plans, the Health and Safety Plan is tailored to the unique needs of our school community and is being created in consultation with local health agencies.
