Ready To Reopen - Part I: A Silver Lining Playbook for the Summer of Covid-19  ~ Adjusting protocols for summer break has always been a part of the routine for school leaders.  Deep cleaning, annual maintenance and construction projects are strategically scheduled when occupants are out of the building.  But your district’s extended summer break, initiating in March, is anything but routine post COVID-19.  This discussion will identify the risks associated with the response and recovery phases of an extended closure, and provide guidance to prevent and mitigate them.  While the connection between occupant health and building health is not at all novel, an emphasis will be placed on the opportunities and benefits of leveraging our newly heightened awareness in the mission to be “ready to reopen”. 1 CPE Finance; 1 QPA Green Purchasing; 1 CEFM*
