ASTI Standing Committee met this evening to discuss the government’s Framework Plan for the Phased Return of Schools. Standing Committee agreed that ASTI members will co-operate with the return of special education classes from February 22nd.
The ASTI has secured a range of additional mitigations and interim measures to support the return of Special Education classes. ASTI Standing Committee will monitor the implementation of these new measures in the coming weeks.
However, Standing Committee is of the view that the government’s Framework Plan is inadequate and needs to be substantially reworked in order to ensure a safe phased return of all students in the coming period of time.
The ASTI continues to engage with the Department of Education on the safe re-opening of schools for other cohorts of students.
FAQs for ASTI members will be published on this website shortly.
