District / School Coordinators and Local County Health Department

Guidance provides recommendations for “how to” implement a statute or rule. These recommendations in this toolkit are based on best practice and provide direction for how to operationalize the requirements set forth in various executive orders and public health orders. All efforts should be made to follow the recommendations when feasible.
  • Identify district/school coordinator(s) responsible for addressing COVID-19 Health and Safety Needs
    • Districts/Schools are encouraged to partner with their local county health department
      • Discuss your fall plans with the local county health department for feedback, and seek their guidance on how to address a COVID-19 case in a school(s).
      • Before launching the 2020-21 school year, consult with your local county health department on the latest public health orders.
      • Throughout the school year, as the number of cases in your community changes, it will be important to be in touch with your local county health department, as you may need to make decisions around suspending in-person instruction.
