Fall Reopening Plan

Our Fall 2020 Reopening School Plan

The Boise School Board has approved a Fall 2020 Reopening Plan for students in the Boise School District. The plan provides students and families with the option to return to school in the Fall for in-person learning or enroll in the District's online learning program. The Boise School District Reopening and Pandemic Plan for Fall 2020 is the first step toward the beginning of school five days a week (Monday-Friday) on August 17, 2020.  At the core of the plan are fundamental interests we must meet to provide a high-quality educational experience while remaining respectful to the Centers for Disease Control guidelines, empathetic to individual choices and flexible in our problem-solving.

The District plan reflects input from hundreds of community stakeholders, including parents, educators, health professionals, state officials, as well as Boise School District health, safety, food, transportation and facilities administration. 

Highlights of Fall 2020 Reopening Plan  

  • Provide Monday through Friday in-person learning at all Boise Schools beginning the start of the 2020-2021 school year on August 17, 2020.

  • Provide an option for students to enroll in an online learning program with a robust learning curriculum that mirrors the District's in-person curriculum, as much as possible. Registration for the online learning option will open July 13th and run through July 31st. Further information about online registration will be announced in the near future.


Each school's Pandemic Operation Plan will support the following personal protective equipment (PPE) strategy (per CDC guidelines):


  • Use of masks and face shields by staff. (Expected)

  • Use of masks or face shields by students. (Expected)

  • Sneeze guards -- Main office space in each school.

  • Mobile hand sanitizer stations in each school. 

  • Hand washing stations/sanitizing stations in each classroom.

  • Intentional physical distancing measures.

  • Take measures to reduce class size and maximize space -- remove furniture, master schedule changes

  • Digital thermometers in each school.  

  • Disinfectant wipes available in each classroom.

  • Disinfectant spray bottle in every classroom.

Please note that the District’s plan, while comprehensive, is neither exhaustive nor static. Below are Monroe’s school’s day-to-day school-level operational plan.
