COVID-19 and the 2021-22 School Year
Districts and charters are responsible for developing site-based plans based on guidance provided by state and federal health officials and the resources and space available within the district. A district or charter may choose to operate in a more restrictive scenario if they cannot meet the required health guidelines.
Information regarding federal funding to support schools in responding to the pandemic can be found via the Department’s website.
