School districts forming task force for reopening

From Local Sources

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a long list of guidelines for reopening schools this fall. The Indiana Department of Education and the office of Gov. Eric Holcomb have not released details on plans for reopening schools.

In response to the CDC guidelines, Dubois County’s four school corporations — Greater Jasper, Northeast Dubois, Southeast Dubois and Southwest Dubois — released a joint press release stating they will be putting together a task force to plan the reopening of county schools following guidance from the governor’s office, IDOE and state and local health departments.

For now, local education leaders are waiting for clarification on guidelines and requirements from various sources.
