COVID-19: Back to School?Jul 27, 2020
On Monday, I joined the Superintendents of Denver Public Schools (Susana Cordova) and Aurora Public Schools (Rico Munn) in a presentation to the Chamber of Commerce. I learned much about the challenges facing school systems as they develop protocols for reopening: for example, how many children can be on a school bus? (the answer: 24 on a bus that has capacity for 77); how can food be served to children? And, perhaps the most difficult overall question: In general, what level of control of the epidemic is needed for school reopening to pose an acceptable risk?
