New Q&A on Civil Rights and School Reopening in the COVID-19 Environment 

Today, May 13, 2021, the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights released: Questions and Answers on Civil Rights and School Reopening in the COVID-19 Environment. The Q&A provides answers to common questions about schools’ responsibilities under the civil rights laws and is designed to help students, families, schools and the public support all students’ rights in educational environments, including in elementary and secondary schools and postsecondary institutions.

In AASA’s view, this Q&A Document is straightforward and doesn’t contain any unexpected guidance on reopening practices. Of note, the document does mention that OCR will be releasing a standalone guidance document on compensatory education in the near future.
