MSBA Fall 2020 School Reopening Guidance
The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic continues to pose significant challenges for Minnesota’s school districts and charter schools as they serve their students, families, and communities. The Minnesota School Boards Association developed its Fall 2020 School Reopening Guidance to support school boards as they seek to meet these challenges. This guidance supplements the resources that the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE), the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and other federal, state, and local agencies and nongovernmental organizations have created. MSBA acknowledges and incorporates the work of these organizations and state school board associations across the nation. Access the Fall 2020 School Reopening Guide. (July 7, 2020)
