Gov. Doug Ducey on June 1 new plans for kids and teachers to safely resume school in the classroom this fall.
“It will look different. It will feel different,” Gov. Ducey said in a statement. “But the idea is that kids will have a more traditional, routine school day where possible and safe.”
The Peoria Unified School District serves more than 37,000 students in Glendale, Peoria, Surprise and Youngtown in 34 elementary schools, seven high schools and one non-traditional high school. In addition, Peoria Unified was the first district in the state to receive the prestigious AdvancED Accreditation.
“There are still many unknowns about the future of this virus and its impact on our state,” Superintendent of Instruction Kathy Hoffman stated. “Still, the Arizona Department of Education remains committed to providing the field with as much guidance, support, and clarity as possible.”
Here are some things to expect:
Additionally, field trips won’t happen so it is encouraged schools to pursue virtual group events and meetings. Small groups will be kept together.
A staff member will be assigned as a point person for anything COVID-19 related at that school.
