In news today…

Last week, the Bradley County Board of Education adopted a policy that allows employees whose work is critical to the continued operation of the Bradley County Schools to continue working after a close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case so long as they have not tested positive, remain asymptomatic, wear appropriate protection, and can maintain appropriate social distance. This Board policy was also subject to the Tennessee Department of Education issuing guidance on how we should proceed.

On Monday, August 18th, the Department of Education and the Department of Health issued joint guidance on the continued employment of critical infrastructure employees. The Administration of the Bradley County Schools is developing procedures to implement this guidance in order to provide for the continued SAFE and SUCCESSFUL operation of our system. As we do so, we will work closely with the Bradley County Health Department to be sure that we are aware of any concerns they may have as we move forward.

It is important to note: Of course, if any employee would prefer not to come to work and would rather remain in quarantine, that is their right under the Families First Coronavirus Relief Act. But if an employee cannot work remotely, and if they can safely return to work, then this plan will enable them to do so. Likewise, this plan will keep highly qualified teachers and other support staff in the classroom serving our students.
