California Schools Prepare to Reopen in Fall

California launched new data at the Safe Schools for All hub to continue tracking the progress of school reopening efforts while highlighting school districts’ plans for summer program offerings. Some of the most interesting data includes:

  • 89 percent of school districts submitting data will offer learning opportunities in the summer including learning acceleration (e.g., high-dose tutoring), enrichment and mental health services
  • 99 percent of public school districts submitting data plan to fully reopen for in-person instruction for the school year beginning fall 2021

Additionally, the California Department of Public Health is launching a new campaign throughout the summer to build confidence with parents and students about the safety of returning to school full time in fall 2021. The campaign will reach out to parents in areas hardest hit by the pandemic with $25 million from AB 86 to support the safe opening of schools during the next fiscal year.

The summer learning opportunities will be supported by $4.6 billion made available in early March by Gov. Gavin Newsom and the legislature.
