Maryland State Education Association Wants Standardized Procedures To Handle Coronavirus Cases In Classrooms

Teachers union asks Maryland for more info on virus cases

The union representing more than 74,000 educators in Maryland is asking officials to release standardized procedures to handle coronavirus cases in classrooms across the state and be transparent about infections at schools. Cheryl Bost is the president of the Maryland State Education Association. Bost on Monday said the state’s decision to let local school systems and health departments determine what case information to share with teachers, staff and parents could jeopardize the safe and sustainable reopening of schools. She says schools can balance privacy and transparency by sharing with educators where there is a case without disclosing the name of the ill student or staff member
