CA Schools Still on Hold for Reopening Timeline

As parents continue to face challenges in the work from home environment, especially with school children participating in remote learning, pressure remains on state government for solutions. Those parents are anxiously awaiting word on when schools will reopen.

Gov. Gavin Newsom recently issued a statement regarding efforts to safely reopen schools in California, but indicates that day is not here yet.

“While the legislature’s proposal represents a step in the right direction, it doesn’t go far enough or fast enough. I look forward to building on the growing momentum to get our schools open and continuing discussions with the legislature to get our kids back in school as safely and quickly as possible. Since the first week of this year, the legislature has had before it our administration’s plan to accelerate and support school reopenings for our youngest students – as safely and quickly as possible. My administration has not waited. In that time, we have prioritized school staff for COVID-19 vaccinations, launched new online tools for transparency and accountability, provided technical assistance to hundreds of school districts, and are directly supporting over a thousand schools with routine COVID-19 testing. More importantly, local leaders have not waited. Every day, more school leaders and staff are coming together to announce safe returns to in-person instruction. Our plan is grounded in the same science that’s been recognized by the medical professionals at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, by the president’s chief medical adviser, Dr. Fauci, and by the president himself.”
