Health and Safety Top Priorities As Planning Continues for 2020–21

On July 13, the Cincinnati Board of Education received an update on the District's Safety Plan for Reopening Schools.

Cincinnati Public Schools is committed to educating our students in environments that are as safe as possible. Our Safety Plan addresses all of the Considerations for Schools outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including Behaviors that Reduce Spread, Maintaining Healthy Environments, Maintaining Healthy Operations and Preparing for When Someone Gets Sick.

Also discussed: 

  • With school and community health data as our guide, CPS is prepared to move to a fully remote learning model if necessary, or to increase in-person learning if deemed safe. 
  • Preschool classrooms and specialized classrooms for students with disabilities will operate with in-person instruction five days per week. Due to low per-classroom numbers, these groups can maintain six-foot social distancing.

Most of CPS' K–12 students will return to classrooms 2–3 days per week under the Board-approved Blended Learning model. We encourage families for whom in-person instruction for children does not make sense to explore enrolling in our Cincinnati Digital Academy for 2020–21.

To ensure you receive the latest information from CPS, please update your home address, email and phone numbers by contacting your child’s school office; or call or email CPS' Customer Care Center: (513) 363-0123
