If COVID - 19 cases in DEKALB COUNTY continue declining, DEKALB COUNTY School District officials anticipate starting phased reopening of schools by Oct. 5. But some Board of Education members are skeptical. Superintendent Cheryl Watson - Harris and DCSD COVID - 19 Task Force presented tentative schedule and plan to start phasing back into face - to - face learning during the Sept. 14 DEKALB COUNTY Board of Education meeting. I just ball of anxiety, to be honest with you, said Board member Vickie Turner, who thought it was too soon to reintroduce students and staff into schools. I dont want to lose any lives. I dont want us to give into pressure. Athletic competition would return even earlier, by Oct. 1 depending on COVID - 19 case data, according to the presentation, and would have COVID - 19 safety precautions in place. District officials say that the spread of COVID - 19 in COUNTY is slowing. If this trend continue, DCSD staff would return to buildings for two days a week for two weeks starting on Oct. 5 as first Phase of hybrid learning, according to presentation by COVID - 19 Task Force to Board. Students for those two weeks would continue to do remote learning. Two weeks are for teachers to prepare for the return of students, according to District officials. The district would do a test run of face - to - face learning on Oct. 15 and 16 for one grade level per school second, sixth and ninth grade before introducing the rest students into schools, according to the presentation. From Oct. 19 to Nov. 6, teachers and staff would work five days in schools while students do one day of face - to - face learning per week, three days of remote learning and one day of independent learning, according to the presentation. From Nov. 9 to Nov. 20, students will have two days of face - to - face learning. By Nov. 30, District anticipates returning to five days of traditional learning for all teachers and students. Watson - Harris say that schedule is subject to change depending on the spread of the virus. The District plans to partner with more external medical professionals and keep analyzing data as flu season start, Watson - Harris say. As of the Sept. 14 meeting, District officials say there were 122 positive COVID - 19 cases per 100 000 DEKALB COUNTY residents over a 14 - day period. Officials consider that substantial spread, which means the District continue with remote learning, according to the presentation. Officials anticipate COUNTY will have six to 100 positive COVID - 19 cases per 100 000 residents by Oct. 5, which is considered low to moderate spread, and would prompt the first phase of hybrid learning, according to the presentation. If those dates do not line up with the decline of COVID - 19 data as anticipated, District officials say teachers and community would have one - week notice of when the first phase of hybrid learning will begin after COVID - 19 positive cases drop below 100 cases per 100 000 residents over 14 - day period. The first phase of hybrid learning would be only staff in school buildings.
