In collaboration with California State Board of Education and other technical assistance partners, CCEE has facilitated the development of the Health and Safety Guidebook to support LEA leadership teams plan for and maintain a safe return to in-person instruction that maximizes future equity outcomes and addresses the diverse needs of California’s students while adapting to the challenges posed by COVID-19. 

The Health & Safety Guidebook is intended to provide streamlined access to the most up-to-date state and federal guidance around health and safety decisions that school communities are facing, with rationales, examples, tools, and resources to support decision-making and implementation of efforts to help students re-enter schools, and focuses on the following key areas: 1) Community Health Context, 2) Facilities and School Operations, 3) Safe School Environments, and 4) Cohorts for Safe Learning.
