Schools may be eyeing an opportunity to reopen in the fall, but many question the safest way to do so with the coronavirus potentially still in play around the country. The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) recently released a report detailing its suggestions for school districts to consider, according to a report on RochesterFirst.com.
The report, which was realized with the advice of educators, healthcare professionals, and parents, suggests limiting the number of students in a classroom, staggering schedules, placing a cap on the number of visitors to school at any given time, and regularly taking the temperature of all students, faculty and staff.
“This has to be a living document,” said Randi Weingarten, the President of AFT. “People are going to have more ingenious ideas but this was a way to plan for this coming school year where we reopen carefully and responsibly.”
