Board Workshop Offers Recommendation for Re-opening Schools

Coconut Telegraph

Manatee County School Board Members heard Superintendent Cynthia Saunders reopening recommendations for public schools in August which includes face masks coverings and eLearning options for families not yet ready for a full return to school. School Board Members will hear final details of the back to school plan at a Board Workshop on July 9th and a vote will be taken at the July 14th Board Meeting. The health, safety and well-being of students, faculty and staff is the School District’s utmost priority as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.

Careful deliberation took place in the creation of the plan, which includes a multifaceted approach to safely reopening schools while providing a high-quality instructional experience. More than 20,000 people recently provided feedback through a survey with 54 percent of Manatee County parents choosing a plan that includes a traditional return to school in August. Board Members are in agreement there will be an expectation that face mask coverings will be worn by all staff and students while inside District buildings and schools, including school buses. Details of the expectations will be voted on during the July 14th Board Meeting.
