The San Mateo County Pandemic Recovery Framework for Schools provides school leaders with the health, education, and legal guidance needed to develop local plans for a safe return to on-campus instruction and learning after campus closures in response to community spread of COVID-19 beginning in March 2020.

The San Mateo County Superintendent of Schools, the San Mateo County Health Officer, school district superintendents and staff, and members of the San Mateo County Counsel’s Office collaborated on drafting the Framework. The Steering Committee of the San Mateo County Coalition for Safe Schools and Communities and members of San Mateo County School Board’s Association reviewed the Framework and provided recommendations.
