Return To School Advisory Committees are convening in each of the four school departments. The committees are comprised of a board member, administrators, teachers, parents, healthcare personnel, school bus drivers and school maintenance personnel. They are meeting weekly to develop a plan using the Department of Education's Framework as a guide. Each school's plan will be reviewed and approved by each of the four school boards and then forwarded to the Department of Education. The goal is to have the plans approved by the boards in early August.
