But what's different this time around is with the vaccine rollout. Most teachers have been able to get vaccinated to ensure a safe return.
While the vaccine was made available for the teachers, the district is not making it mandatory for the return.
As for the students Laurie Doering, CESD Superintendent, said they are confident reopening as long as there is a comprehensive mitigation plan in place. Citing research that shows when a strong mitigation plan is in place, there is less transmission of the virus.
