BOISE, Idaho — The Boise School District released a draft of district-wide operations plan Wednesday for the reopening of schools for the fall semester. In a press release, district officials say the draft is comprehensive but by no means exhaustive. The plan is the first step to resuming a five-day school week that follows CDC guidelines while allowing the district to be flexible in the delivery of high-quality educational experience both in-person and online.

Day-to-day school-level operations plans, as well as detailed information regarding the District’s new online school, will be available following the adoption of an overall operational plan. The draft plan reflects input from Boise School District health, safety, food and facilities administration, school principals, community health professionals, as well as feedback from recent staff and parent surveys.

District officials are collecting parent, patron and staff comments on the draft plan through 5 p.m. on Monday, June 15. The public can review the draft plan and make comments online.

The draft plan and public comments will be presented to the Boise School District Board of Trustees for final review at 9:00 a.m., Thursday, June 18.
