Business & Org Toolkit — Schools

 Dr. George F. Fiore

"Our biggest challenge is to safely reopen our buildings so that students and staff can return to school in the Fall. In order to do so, we will need specific guidance from health professionals in a timely fashion so that schools can effectively plan for the reopening while balancing health, fiscal, and community concerns. Opening our schools is a decision that we do not take lightly, and the collaborative partnership with County officials is greatly welcomed."

— Dr. George F. Fiore, Executive Director
Chester County Intermediate Unit
