COVID-19 School Announcements
The Sonoma County Office of Education (SCOE) works closely with local public schools and the Sonoma County Emergency Operations Center in the event of disasters that cause school closures. However, SCOE cannot determine whether a school district should close. Each school district independently decides whether to close, based on local conditions. In the case of Coroanvirus, districts consult with the county's public health officer to determine whether school closures are necessary. SCOE receives official closure reports from superintendents only. SCOE then reports closure information to the media and posts closures on this web page. Information is posted and updated here as it is announced.
On July 17, Gov. Newsom issued new state directives regarding school reopening. SCOE will be working over the next two weeks to update the information on these pages to reflect the new guidance. Until then, please see the new state guidance here and view SCOE's statement in response to the new guidance here.
School Reopening Considerations for the Fall
SCOE is working closely with school districts, the state department of education, and local health officials to determine when it will be safe to reopen school—and under what conditions.
SCOE está trabajando en estrecha colaboración con los distritos escolares, el departamento de educación del estado y los funcionarios de salud locales para determinar cuándo será seguro reabrir la escuela y bajo qué conditioned.
