Considerations and Recommendations for Tucson Unified Schools - SY 2020-2021

Tucson Unified School District (TUSD) is providing the following guidance to support our schools and communities in determining their plans and strategies for reopening schools in 2020–2021. Our approach is built upon the guidance and recommendations of the Arizona Department of Education Road Map, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Arizona Department of Public Health, Pima County Health Department, and other research. It is strongly aligned with the reopening guidelines that have been provided by our state and federal leaders. It is designed to help our schools prioritize the health and safety of students and educators as we open school buildings and deliver instruction. Guidance in this report is subject to change given developments and recommendations from federal and state entities. Please visit the websites for the CDC, Arizona Department of Health, and Pima County Health Department for additional updates.
