On June 8, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond released guidance for reopening K-12 schools — Stronger Together: A Guidebook for the Safe Reopening of California’s Public Schools.

This guidance was created through the statewide reopening schools task force that fostered a collaborative process for educators and stakeholders, including the CFT. 

It is also informed by the advice of many health and safety organizations including the Centers for Disease Control, California Department of Public Health, and the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health. 

This document is not a statewide mandate; the intent of this document is to be a guide for the local discussion on safely reopening schools.
