Ensuring a safe return to school with COVID-19 has created the need to evaluate several different operational models. Over the last few months, CPS has assembled 100s of experts and conducted numerous surveys/focus groups with key stakeholders to evaluate these models. Based on this we have created a progressive series of reopening models to use as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves.
