The executive director of Kairos Public Schools is not too happy about a proposal by Gov. Gavin Newsom to provide financial incentives to school districts that adopt safety and reopening plans.
In a news release, Jared Austin felt the plan would jeopardize his schools’ ability to continue teaching students in person, which it has been doing since Oct. 13 after applying for a state elementary school waiver and receiving guidance from Solano County Public Health.
“Although we appreciate the governor focusing on the safety of our students and staff, this new plan really concerns me,” he said.
