Mrs. Ramona Tyson, Interim Superintendent of DeKalb County School District (DCSD), in collaboration with the DeKalb County School Board is implementing proactive measures to minimize risk to students, employees, and families relating to the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19. This effort included the establishment a cross-functional team of senior district leaders who have been tasked with monitoring and overseeing DCSD’s ongoing response to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
The cross-functional team will direct these proactive
measures by providing guidance on student attendance, student travel and
re-entry, employee travel and re-entry, employee attendance and re-entry,
employee attendance, and school/district sponsored events. DCSD remains in
close communication with the DeKalb County Board of Health and other public
health officials to make informed operational decisions. DCSD is committed to
keeping our students, employees, and families safe and informed with the most
current recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) https://www.cdc.gov/ , Department of
Public Health (DPH) www.dph.ga.gov , and
the Georgia Department of Education (GADOE).
