State College Area School District is planning to offer all students the option of attending class in-person or enrolling in its Virtual Academy cyber option this fall, Superintendent Bob O'Donnell wrote in a message to district families on Friday. The district has developed a draft a COVID-19 health and safety plan as mandated by the Department of Education, which requires plans to follow health department and Centers for Disease Control guidelines and must be approved by the school board before schools reopen. Health and safety, educational model and operations committees have been working on the SCASD plan with guidance from health professionals. Feedback is being accepted through the end of the day on Tuesday and the school board is expected to vote on a final plan on July 6. "We are planning to provide all students with the opportunity to attend school in a safe manner through our adherence to the district’s Health and Safety Plan," O'Donnell wrote. That will include social distancing of six feet and requiring all students, faculty and staff to wear masks, which O'Donnell said "are critical to the effectiveness of our contract tracing." Elementary students will be provided daily, full-day in-school learning. Secondary students, however, will be provided full-day in-school learning every other day, "along with asynchronous experiences when not in school," O'Donnell wrote. Students with specific learning needs will have the opportunity to be in school every day. The district also will develop plans for each student with complex special needs on case-by-case basis. For buses, guidelines include scheduled cleaning and disinfection between routes, providing drivers with masks and gloves, hand sanitizers on all buses and signage and reminders about masking and distancing.
