School Committee Spring Report:
Feedback for Return-to-School Working Group
DESE's Return-to-School Working Group will help develop a K-12 summer and fall restart and recovery plan. What will happen in public schools next year is likely to be largely determined by the state, including social distance guidelines (class size, PE, cafeteria use, etc.) and the number of children in the school (e.g., every other day attendance, week on and week off, etc.). Please consider sharing your thoughts with the Working Group at: RTSWG@mass.gov
