As part of the Carson City School District’s Safe Reopening Plan for the 2021-2022 school year, the district will host a workshop to discuss and obtain public input 6 p.m. Tuesday prior to the scheduled 7 p.m. school board meeting in the Robert Crowell Board Room at the Carson City Community Center.  


It is anticipated that districts and schools will open for the 2021-22 school year with the capacity to offer in-person learning to all students. Given the U.S. Department of Education guidance regarding plans for Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services, all schools/districts must update or replace their 2020-21 reopening plans, as previously required by Emergency Directive 022, to meet the statutory requirements of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP Act). 


Consistent with section 2001(i)(2) of the ARP Act, schools and districts are to seek public input and will take such input into account in determining revisions to its plan. The Carson City School District invites citizens, parents, students, tribal leaders and public agencies to participate. 


Additionally, due to the need to accommodate student and family health and safety concerns and the potential need for students to have access to education while under quarantine, Section 15 of Directive 044 requires that all districts and schools provide a distance education option for students throughout the remainder of the Governor's Declaration of Emergency in response to COVID-19. Therefore, all districts and schools must submit a Plan for a Path Forward Program of Distance Education for the 2021-22 school year. 


The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. and end promptly at 7 p.m. Click here to view the current draft of the Safe School Reopening Plan 2021-2022.
