We're Mapping Who's Applying For School Reopening Waivers
It's back-to-school time in California, but for many local students, that doesn't mean it's time to go back to campus just yet.
Southern California counties are on the state's COVID-19 watchlist, which means schools have to conduct all classes online until their county is off the list for at least two weeks.
There's one exception to this, though: a waiver for elementary schools with approved reopening plans.
The process is a bit complex (as we explain here), but as part of it, schools and districts are required to reach out to teachers and staff, parents, and community organizations to see what they think of their reopening plans.
That's where you come in.
Has your school or district indicated it will be applying for one of these reopening waivers? If so, what do you think of the process and the plan? If not, what do you think of that?
You can let us know by emailing me, LAist reporter Carla Javier. We may use your insights as we continue to report on these waivers.
