Updated June 1: Supt. of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman released the Roadmap for Reopening Schools developed by the Arizona Department of Education this morning so schools can determine what back to school will be like for their students and teachers after campuses were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“While our coming school year will also look different from years past, and as the entire world grapples with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, I take heart knowing that our schools will continue to be bedrocks of support, comfort, and stability,” Supt. Hoffman said.
The recommendations were developed with the help of public health experts and school leaders statewide.
“It provides a series of recommendations for how schools can approach the 2020-2021 school year and offers adaptable considerations to meet each community’s unique needs,” Supt. Hoffman said. “Given the fluidity of the public health situation, this will be a living document that will be updated based on the most current information.”
