These students affected by the Stay Home Stay Safe policy should not be exited. They should be kept on roles.

Please refer to the official memos on this topic:


Q: How should we record active session days, if we have under 175?

AOE has tracked all waiver requests and total active session days should be submitted as recorded (even if under 175). AOE will allow days on and after March 18, 2020, to count as instructional days, understanding that SUs timing varied on when remote learning began.


Q: Are there courses changes due to remote learning?

Federal guidance has asked us to keep course setting as it would have been recorded preCOVID-19, and not make changes this year due to remote learning. DC#04 COVID-19 Help Sheet (Revised: June 25, 2020)
