CT’s Comprehensive Plan for Returning to In-School Instruction
Ct's guidelines for back to school is titled, 'Adapt, Advance, Achieve: Connecticut's Plan to Learn and Grow Together.'
Parents, the following is your guidebook to in-school learning for the 2020-2021 school year from the State Department of Education. The PDF document contains 45 pages of explanations, charts, and graphs about everything you might have a question about as you send your kids back to the classroom.
This guide was formulated by public health officials, input from students, parents, teachers, and educational stakeholders. This is a roadmap for anyone who has a school-age child in Connecticut. If you don't mind, I'm going to summarize some of the key points in this 45-page document.
