Proposed delayed school start for Savannah-Chatham Public Schools

Saturday, July 11th, 2020

Savannah Chatham public schools calendar 2020-21 new modified

Savannah-Chatham Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Ann Levett will make a recommendation to the Board of Education at their Thurs. July 16, 2020 meeting that the Academic Calendar for the 2020-21 school year be modified due to impacts created by COVID-19.

While the approved calendar for the upcoming school year originally called for a start date of Aug. 5, 2020, after reviewing public health data and hearing feedback from staff, parents and task force members, the Superintendent is advocating for a delayed start to the 2020-21 school year and other changes to the calendar.

Above is the recommended modified calendar that will be discussed at the July 16 Board of Education meeting.

With more than 37,000 students, the Savannah-Chatham County public school system is one of Georgia’s largest outside metro Atlanta.

Some Georgia school districts, such as Gwinnett and Richmond counties, are letting parents choose between in-person and online classes. Others are biding for more time. Bibb County schools have delayed the start of classes until after the Labor Day holiday Sept. 7 while officials weigh options, The Associated Press reported.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended resuming in-person classes for K-12 students as long as it can be done safely. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is rolling out guidance. Draft CDC documents obtained by The Associated Press say: “Decisions about how to open and run schools safely should be made based on local needs and conditions.”
