Friday, June 5, 2020

The Indiana Department of Education has released guidance for re-opening schools for the 2020-21 academic school year.

Indiana’s Considerations for Learning and Safe Schools, or “IN-CLASS”, plan was developed in partnership with Governor Eric Holcomb’s office, the state Department of Health, the IHSAA, Family and Social Services Administration, and a group of medical professionals.

Recommendations within the plan include school districts contacting their insurance providers to go over liability coverage, review and revise the school year and build in contingency plans, as well as action to develop specific testing and hygiene procedures.

In addition, all employees and students will be encouraged to wear cloth face coverings.
