COVID-19 Recovery and Reopening Plan
Reopening campuses will require a great deal of planning and preparation, and many expenses that would not have been necessary under normal circumstances. School leaders are anxious to bring students and staff back to school, but we must do it in a safe way.
The San Diego County Office of Education’s Recovery and Reopening Plan provides districts and schools with detailed, practical instructions on how to prepare schools for reopening after the closures resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. After identifying specific planning assumptions and recommendations based on current health guidelines, SDCOE’s subject-matter experts, in consultation with public health officials and other key stakeholders, developed these resources to guide leaders through the reopening process.
We encourage each of the nearly 800 public schools and 230 private schools in the county to consider this guidance, as well as guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), California Department of Education (CDE), California Department of Public Health (CDPH), and local public health orders, as part of their planning process. The plan is presented in six focus areas to allow stakeholders to quickly access information most relevant to them and customize their plan to meet the needs of their school community.
