School Waivers Public Schools

.

Stanislaus County has been on the State Monitoring List since June 16, 2020. On July 17, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that if a county has been on the monitoring list within the prior 14 days, a school must conduct distance learning only, until the county has been off the monitoring list for at least 14 days. 

In counties on the monitoring list, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) guidance allows a district superintendent, private school principal/head of school, or executive director of a charter school to apply for a waiver from the Stanislaus County Health Officer to open an elementary school for in-person instruction. This waiver is applicable only for grades TK-6, even if the grade configuration at the school includes additional grades. The Stanislaus County Health Officer reviews the application and reopening plan (along with local community epidemiological data), and if the waiver application is complete submits to CDPH, for a decision to grant or deny the waiver. Elementary schools in counties on the monitoring list within the prior 14 days may not open for in-person instruction until they have received approval of the submitted waiver from the Stanislaus County Health Officer and CDPH.
