Return to School Plan: Key Legal, Policy, and Operational Considerations for Independent Schools


Baker Donelson, Maryvale Preparatory School, and the Southern Association of Independent Schools are partnering to provide an in-depth discussion of the legal, policy, operational, and health and safety aspects necessary for independent schools to consider in developing their return to school plans.

COVID-19 has created unprecedented challenges for independent schools, including pivoting to virtual/remote learning modules, creating financial stress, straining staff, and limiting resources. Under the current crisis conditions, independent schools are spread thin as they navigate federal, state, and local laws and evolving guidance by departments of education, departments of health, and the CDC for returning to school for the 2020-2021 academic school year.

This webinar will include an informative discussion of steps that independent schools should be considering as they develop their return to school plan, including:

  • Employee and student policies unique to COVID-19
  • Vendor terms and contracts
  • Immunization issues
  • Health and safety practices for students, teachers, janitorial staff, health staff, visitors and volunteers
  • Outbreak and re-closure plans
  • Other key considerations as we move into the next normal
