Wisconsin DPI issues guidelines for school reopenings

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has released guidelines for reopening schools this fall, and they include quite a few changes that may take some getting used to.

The 83-page document, called "Education Forward," includes guidelines for social distancing, four-day weeks (with the fifth day for deep cleaning of schools and teacher training), rotating classrooms vs. outdoor or virtual learning, and resources for digital and analog learning materials both in and out of the classroom. Differing guidelines are issued elementary, middle, and high school levels, with elementary school students returning to school before the other levels.

Officially, these are just guidelines issued by the state; local school districts can use as much or as few of the guidelines as they feel appropriate. You can read the full report here. It's not the craziest page-turner, but it will let you know what your kids might be dealing with as school returns this fall.
