Public Charter Schools’ Commitment to Safely Reopen Schools

Aug 12, 2021

Dear Mayor Bowser,

The health and safety of our students and staff remains our top priority as we continue to reopen our buildings for the upcoming school year. While each local education agency is independent, we have committed to requiring our staff to get vaccinated or comply with regular COVID-19 testing.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have fiercely advocated for equitable access to health-related services and asymptomatic COVID-19 testing. We asked for clear, updated public health guidance and orders to enable our schools to provide quality in-person learning environments for more students. And, we partnered together with the city to make sure that the thousands of eligible charter school personnel had equitable access to the life-saving COVID-19 vaccine, while educating our broader school communities on its importance and efficacy.

As we move forward into the next school year, we are committed to the highest safety standards, including following citywide health and safety guidelines for schools, as we work hard to deliver the high-quality education our students deserve.
