3030-21 Planning Guidance for Minnesota Schools
Spring 2020 brought unprecedented changes to society and our education system. As we plan for the 2020-21 school year, the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) is working with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and determine how to keep our students, families and staff healthy and safe. We have developed guidance for three scenarios for the school year, detailed in this document. School districts and charter schools should plan for all three scenarios, based on MDH planning guidance,so our schools can be ready for whatever the public health situation may require. Schools should offer distance learning to enrolled students who may be medically vulnerable or otherwise unable or unwilling to return to in-person or hybrid learning.
