YCOE COVID-19 Safety Plan (CSP) for In-Person Instruction

In order to reopen safety, the California Department of Public Health requires that districts publish to their website a COVID-19 Comprehensive Safety Plan which consists of the Cal/OSHA Prevention Program (CPP) and the COVID-19 School Guidance Checklist.  In addition, the State requires that the District be in the Red Tier for five (5) consecutive days before schools may reopen.

Current Tier for Yolo County

As of February 23, 2021, Yolo County is in the red tier. You can learn more about the different colored levels and what it means for schools by visiting the Quick Guide.

how does the regional stay at home order effect schools in Yolo county

The Order does not modify existing state guidance regarding K-12 schools.

Schools that are currently open are able to continue to provide in-person instruction on school sites. 

  • Schools that are currently operating under an elementary school waiver are able to continue to provide instruction to students on school sites.
  • Schools that reopened while their county was in a less restrictive tier are able to continue to provide instruction to students on school sites.
  • All schools that have not yet reopened for in-person instruction are able to continue to serve small cohorts of students (e.g., students with disabilities) following CDPH Guidance.

Schools are still required to follow the Schools Guidance issued by CDPH which outlines requirements for safe conditions, testing and tracing. Schools may be required to close if certain percentages of staff and students are diagnosed with COVID-19. All existing guidance applicable to schools can be found on the CDPH website.
