Public Education's Point of Reference for Making Educated Decisions

By the Way . . . CDE Provides Considerations for Temporary School Closures

On October 14, 2019, the California Department of Education (CDE) posted factors that, in addition to other relevant local conditions and concerns, should be considered when making a temporary school closure decision. The factors include health and safety measures, instructional time, timing, and a communication plan, in addition to equity considerations (e.g., schools provide a safe environment for students and are an alternative to child care for some parents). The CDE also provides links to the Public Safety Power Shutoff FAQs and the Form J-13 waiver. To view the webpage, click here.
