NOTE: The State Department of Education is open for business. However, to help stop the spread of coronavirus our lobby is closed. If you require in-person assistance, please call (208) 332-6800 to schedule an appointment.
Schools can play an important role in efforts taken by health officials to prevent the introduction and spread of coronavirus.
The U.S. Department of Education and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have encouraged state and local education agencies to share crucial information about the disease and its potential transmission to students, families, staff and community members.
Should state and local health officials deem it necessary to take additional steps to stop the spread of COVID-19, schools are in a unique position to help.
