Return to Work Staff Notification (October 6, 2020 )
From: Cheryl Watson-Harris
DeKalb Schools – Superintendent
During the Board meeting on September 14, 2020, the District disclosed and discussed the phase-in plan. Under my leadership, the COVID-19 Re-Opening Task Force monitors the data trends daily and acknowledges that there has been a significant decline in the 14-day average per 100,000 DeKalb County residents from 122 on September 12, 2020 to 93 on October 6, 2020. Since the 14-day average per 100,000 DeKalb County residents is less than 100, the District is engaging in the following activities to prepare our staff, students, and families for the transition to the next phases:
|Begin Phase II|
|October 19, 2020||Hybrid Working Environment 2 Days Per Week (10, 11, and 12-month Staff)|
|October 9-23, 2020||Distribute the Parent/Guardian Intent to Return Notification Electronically|
|Begin Phase III|
|November 2, and 4-6, 2020||Traditional Working Environment 5 Days Per Week (10, 11, and 12-month Staff)|
|November 3, 2020||Digital Learning Half Day|
|November 5-6, 2020||Begin One-Day Hybrid Learning Environment for Beta Group|
|November 9, 2020||Begin One-Day Hybrid Learning Environment for All Students Who Opt-In and Continue Distance/Remote Learning for Students Who Do Not|
Please note that the tentative timeline is subject to change based on COVID-19 data and current health guidance from medical experts and health agencies.
