This document represents a collaborative effort from The Big 8 Plus Health and Safety Coalition and was created in response to the need for a unified approach in planning for the return to schools in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The key details to consider and the resulting recommendations have been developed based on current information from ODH, CDC and NASN, as well as other applicable research data. This is a fairly comprehensive list and the recommendations represent the best practice guidelines for the safe return to schools for both students and staff as of today, 6/4/2020. While some guidelines are non-negotiable per ODH directives, it will be up to individual districts as to how they implement these best practice protocols. Please note that this is a fluid document and guidelines may change as prescriptive health orders are updated.

Guidelines include Health Principles for Education and Recommendations and Considerations for:

  • Protective Measures
  • Sanitation
  • Transportation
  • Building Considerations
  • Class Transition
  • Food/Eating
  • Health Assessments
  • COVID-19 Tracking and Reporting
  • Medication Administration
  • High Risk Students and Staff
  • Training and Education
  • Legislative Support and Special Ed Considerations
