DC-CORE Outdoor Public Hearing on DCPS Reopening
Join educators, parents and students at the DC Caucus of Rank and File Educators Outdoor Public Hearing on DCPS Reopening at 5PM, Tuesday, September 21st outside Watkins ES (420 12th St SE DC).
We want to make sure that everyone knows what is really happening in our schools when it comes to health and safety. DCPS is not doing enough to support our schools in following proper health processes and procedures and this is leading to disjointed and unsafe policies across our schools.
Increased availability of virtual options to all those who want it.
Transparency about redefining close contacts, increasing the speed and scope of contact tracing, and including educators in the process.
More COVID testing that includes a higher percentage of asymptomatic staff and students using nasal swabs, and more access to rapid testing for close contacts and symptomatic individuals.
