BC students, in kindergarten to grade 12, will return to in-class learning starting the week of September 8, 2020. Registered Speech-Language Pathologists (RSLPs) who work in schools – either as employees or contractors of school districts – should consult back to school plans released by the BC Government and school districts, along with other resources.
BC Government Back to School Plan
Consult the BC Government’s Back to School Plan for information on:
- Health and safety measures, including health guidelines
- COVID-19 protocols
- School district back to school plans: links are provided to back to school plans developed by all 60 school districts
- Other information that may be relevant to school-based practice for RSLPs
School district information
In addition to the school districts’ back to school plans linked above, RSLPs should consult the school districts where they work to determine if there is any other guidance available for in-school or virtual practice.
CSHBC compiled Guidance for Providing In-person Community Care During COVID-19. The guidance, including links to resources from BC Centre for Disease Control and WorkSafeBC, is applicable to school-based practice.
