LACDPH Safe Schools for All

On January 14, 2021, the State of California launched their Safe Schools for All initiative and information hub. This included updated, consolidated guidance for K-12 schools, the COVID-19 and Reopening In-Person Instruction Framework & Public Health Guidance for K-12 Schools in California. The Safe Schools for All framework replaces the prior elementary school waiver application and approval process, which is now permanently retired. However, all waiver approvals previously granted by LACDPH still remain in effect.

Current reopening requirements under Safe Schools for All framework

At this time, all districts and schools in Los Angeles County are permitted to open for in person instruction for all students in any grades TK through 6. No schools may reopen for in person instruction of grades 7 – 12 until LA County has been assigned to the next less restrictive tier (Red Tier) under the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy. However, all schools may provide in-person specialized support, services, and assessments to students of high need in any grade for limited numbers of students in either one-on-one or small cohort settings.

Reopening requirements for grades TK-6 may differ depending on what category your school or district falls into.

1. Your school has been open previously for in-person instruction of any grades TK-2 through the previous elementary school waiver process

  • Post a completed State COVID-19 Safety Plan* to your school or district website by February 1, 2021
  • In addition, a separate online cover information sheet must be completed for each individual school that will be reopening for any grades TK-6. The brief online form is available here. The information will assist DPH in data tracking and knowing which schools are open for which services. It will benefit your schools by allowing our School Technical Assistance Team to contact the appropriate schools to offer support and set up site visits.
  • If not already completed, a LACDPH Reopening Protocol for K-12 Schools (Appendix T1) must be completed and submitted to DPH for review for each school that will be reopening for any grades TK-6. The Protocol must also be posted publicly on your school or district webpage and must be prominently displayed at each school facility.

2. Your school has not previously been open for in-person instruction for any grades.

  • Complete the State COVID-19 Safety Plan (CSP)* and post to your school or district website
  • Send the completed CSP to LACDPH at TASchoolSupport@ph.lacounty.gov and to CDPH at K12csp@cdph.ca.gov for review
  • Complete the LACDPH cover information sheet online here for each school that will reopening for in person instruction of any grades TK-6
  • Complete a LACDPH Reopening Protocol for K-12 Schools (Appendix T1) and submit to DPH for review for each school that will be reopening for any grades TK-6. The Protocol must also be posted publicly on your school or district webpage and must be prominently displayed at each school facility.
  • If there are any deficiencies noted in your submitted materials, the County or State will respond within 7 business days with request for revisions or additional information. If there is no response within 7 business days, your submission and plan are approved and you are permitted to open on the 8th business day after submission.

*The State COVID-19 Safety Plan (CSP) consists of two separate documents, both of which must be complete and posted or submitted as required

Note: For schools not yet prepared for reopening for full grade in-person instruction but wish to serve students in-person with specialized support or services, a separate notification is required to be filed with DPH and can be found here.
