State School Officials Push Back Against Safe Schools For All Program

Superintendents from some of the largest school districts in the state are pushing back against Governor Newsom's plan to reopen schools.

Officials from L.A., San Francisco, Sacramento, San Diego, and more say the $2 billion allocated for the Safe Schools For All Program falls short of what's needed for large districts. Poorer communities of color are seeing higher COVID rates than other communities, which makes it a challenge to meet the state's requirements to reopen schools. Other issues with the plan include a lack of uniformity in safety standards and a coherent vaccination plan for students, teachers, and staff.
