FRANKFORT, Ky. (WSAZ) - The Kentucky Department of Education has released new guidance for school facilities.
The two new documents, which were announced Monday, include logistics and facility considerations when schools reopen during the COVID-19 pandemic.
They also include plans for reopening career and technical education centers.
One of the documents, “COVID-19 Considerations for Reopening Schools: Facilities and Logistics,” provides information regarding cleaning and sanitation, changes to support social distancing, changes in patterns for vehicular and foot traffic and building security. It also includes a link to a room capacity calculator.
The other document, “COVID-19 Plan for Reopening Secondary Career and Technical (CTE) Facilities for Completion of Industry Certifications and Lab-Based Dual Credit Coursework,” is specific to the reopening of CTE facilities. It has plans for districts and area technology centers for when districts let students go back to CTE facilities during the summer to complete course and lab work from the 201-2020 school year. There are also general requirements for districts when making these plans.
