State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond is holding a press conference to discuss the California Department of Education's 62-page guidelines for reopening schools across the state.

"The intent of this document is to be a guide for local discussion
on reopening schools," Thurmond wrote. "It is not a “one-size-fits-all” document; rather, it is a document that honors the varied local contexts of each of our LEAs [Local Education Agencies]."

According to the California Department of Education's Facebook page, "educational leaders will find recommendations for face coverings, physical distancing, and symptom screening should schools plan to provide some form of in-person instruction and distance learning."
