I have spoken with many residents who wonder what #BackToSchool is going to look like this year. As a mom, a nana and a former teacher, I understand and share these growing concerns.
I am working to pass a new plan through the Legislature to keep students and their families safe so schools can open and classes can resume in the fall. Local school districts and health departments can work together to develop health and safety standards that are best for communities based on their unique needs. When it makes sense, we should allow more emphasis on technology and distance learning to make sure education continues safely without interruption.
When it comes to education, nothing is more important than children's success, and the health and safety of students and teachers is a top concern of mine.
Please feel free to share your thoughts!
