Planning the 20-21 School Year - Health and Safety


As districts and schools design their fall opening plans, CDE in cooperation with CDPHE offers the following health and safety protocols for ways in which schools can help protect students, teachers, administrators and staff and slow the spread of COVID-19.

To the extent possible, districts and schools are encouraged to work with their local county health department on how to implement the protocols while considering the feasibility of the fall opening plans and meeting the unique needs of their local community.

The Health and Safety section provides guidance on opening schools, addressing a COVID-19 case in a school and slowing the spread of diseases while protecting vulnerable students and educators.
