Mitigation and New Mandates

The career center will follow recent mitigation efforts issued by the state’s new mandated guidance

released last month. The career center will follow the protocol set forth by the state for a medium size school of 500-900 students. Please reference the chart table below from the Pennsylvania Department of Education.

Recommendations for Medium (500-900 students) Pre-K to 12 School Buildings Following Identification of a Case(s) of COVID-19

It is important to note that a significant and/or widespread outbreak may require moving to a more remote-based instructional model more quickly. DOH will provide proactive consultative assistance to school entities should such an outbreak occur.

DOH and PDE recommend a Full Remote Learning Model for all schools in counties with substantial level of community transmission. Schools that choose to pursue in-person instruction or other models in which school buildings are utilized by students and/or staff should follow the recommendations here.

In addition to following quarantining procedures set forth by the state, the career center will also work closely with each district to support their student quarantine procedures.
