January 7, 2021 - Governor’s “Safe Schools for All” Plan Will Not Benefit Stanislaus County Schools 
The Stanislaus County Office of Education and districts within our county are aware of Governor Gavin Newsom’s “Safe Schools for All” plan released on Wednesday, December 30. Critics, while praising the intent of the plan, also criticized it for being incomplete and confusing.
“Since the beginning of the school year, districts within our county have worked with the State and County Departments of Public Health to create plans for students’ safe return to school,” said Stanislaus County Superintendent of Schools Scott Kuykendall. “At this time, school districts will continue to adhere to their "School Reopening Plans" and follow the safety protocols with guidance provided by the California Public Health Department and Stanislaus County Health Services Agency.”  
According to Kuykendall, under the Governor’s December 30 proposal, only schools in counties with fewer than 28 positive coronavirus cases per 100,000 population can participate, which means schools in Stanislaus County will not be eligible at this time due to widespread COVID-19 infection rates. In fact, as of Jan. 1, most schools in the State won’t be able to participate, as only 11 counties out of 58 have infection rates of less than 28.
“As always, our districts will pursue a measured and moderate response to this politically-charged, constantly shifting situation,” said Kuykendall. “We will continue to prioritize the safety of all students, high-quality instruction, and getting all students back to campuses.” Currently, the vast majority of elementary students in the county are already back to in-person instruction through hybrid models. The following (from EdSource) answers some key questions about how the plan is intended to operate (click here).
