WILMINGTON, Delaware (WPVI) -- Delaware Governor John Carney has assembled working groups to come up with a safe strategy for reopening schools in the fall.
Meetings will be open to the public, who will hear input from experts in three departments: Health and Wellness, Academics and Equity, and Operations and Services.
The first virtual meeting is Thursday, May 21 at 2 p.m.
"These working groups will provide important recommendations to Secretary of Education Susan Bunting and school and district leaders on how to safely return to school," said Governor Carney. "I am pleased with the expertise these members bring to this important effort and look forward to their guidance on the key issues that Delaware's superintendents and charter school leaders must consider before re-opening their buildings."
The working groups, which include student representation and members of the General Assembly, will make final recommendations to the Delaware Department of Education in July. The working groups will continue to meet through September 2020, or an alternate time period as set by Secretary Bunting, officials said.
