On March 15, 2022, the Hart County Charter System Leadership Team met to discuss visitor restrictions implemented during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The following guidance and letter from Superintendent Jay Floyd is a result of that meeting.
According to the District 2 Department of Public Health, all counties in District 2, including Hart County, are considered to have “low” community level transmissibility of COVID-19. In making this decision, officials considered that Hart County’s 14-day case rate and percent positive rate has continued to decline in recent weeks. As of March 14, the percent positive rate was 2.5% and the 14-day case rate was 165 (per 100K).
The Hart County Charter System is seeking an Ed-Flex waiver as related to Title IV, Part A. If approved, the district will not be bound to the 20-20 portion statute minimums. The flexibility would allow the district to better meet the needs of students and staff members in that additional funds could be budgeted for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) implementation.
Public comments regarding this action are being received through Friday, March 25. To leave a comment, click this link: https://forms.gle/KvBMu7UxuaEVvkyHA
