More schools gain approval for in-person instruction
INLAND EMPIRE – (INT) – More San Bernardino County schools have been cleared for reopening and in-person instruction.
The County Department of Public Health (DPH) reports that 28 elementary schools have thus far been given permission to provide in-person instruction, while another 14 applications are currently under review by DPH and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). To date, only two school applications have been denied.
Many of the approved schools are located in Lucerne Valley. Several more are private or charter schools scattered about the county.
Bear Valley Unified School District recently received waiver approval to reopen classrooms for TK-5th grade students. Staff and students will return to campuses in phases using a hybrid learning model.
To secure a waiver from State mandates forbidding in-person instruction, a school must complete a Waiver Application showing that its local health jurisdiction has experienced fewer than 14 daily cases per 100,000 residents over the prior 14 days.
