What should reopening look like for Louisiana schools? : Just a few hours ago Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made a dangerous request to the state board of elementary and secondary education and Dr. Brumley (State Superintendent of Education). He is calling on BESE to not require the use of masks (a basic measure of protection that we all have from Coronavirus). Tuesday, July 14th, the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) will meet to discuss reopening plans/policies for Louisiana K-12 schools. Through House Bill 59, the legislature charged BESE to adopt "emergency rules informed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to provide minimum standards, policies, medical exceptions, and regulations to govern the reopening of schools for the 2020-2021 school year to ensure that students, faculty, staff, and others on school property are protected to the extent possible and practical from COVID-19." These emergency rules will apply to all school districts. Local education authorities will have the ability to go above and beyond the rules set out by BESE, but they can not "adopt a policy, rule, or regulation that imposes a lesser standard." What do you want to see in the emergency rules? What do you want BESE to think about when they make these rules? What do you want them to consider? It's important for the Board to hear from educators, parents and students before making these decisions. Write a letter to BESE to express your opinion here. Full Article
