Since taking the oath of office, Mrs. Watson-Harris’ top priority has been the plan to re-open schools. She and the DCSD COVID-19 Re-Opening Task Force (CRTF) have been working diligently to update the existing framework, and the proposed plan will be shared with the DeKalb County Board of Education during its meeting on Monday, July 13, for review and discussion.

The plan incorporates current guidelines from the Georgia Department of Education, the latest data from the Georgia Department of Public Health, and feedback from parents, students, staff, and stakeholders in the community. Throughout the process, the safety of students has been the number one priority. Once approved, the plan will be distributed to the DeKalb County community.
