A Message from OCCS

LAST UPDATED: 5/12/2021

Ohio school buildings are allowed to reopen for the 2020-2021 school year, per the Ohio Governor and Ohio Department of Education. The Reset and Restart planning guide provides support for schools navigating this process of reopening their buildings.

The Ohio Council of Community Schools is working with all of our sponsored schools to ensure that they have a plan in place, that they are following recommendations by health professionals, and that students’ needs are being met.

OCCS employees will continue working remotely with access to emails and voicemails. Should you have questions or need assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

For administrators seeking guidance and assistance as it relates to re-opening schools, see:
