Superintendent of Public Instruction Elsie Arntzen has launched the Montana Learn 2020 and Montana Flex 2020 Task Forces to assist in developing K-12 public schools re-opening guidelines for the 2020-2021 school year. Superintendent Arntzen has consistently shared that the new normal in Montana’s K-12 schools will look different as a result of COVID-19. She has begun organizing the internal and external flexibilities the OPI and schools will need to serve students in this new environment.

In May and June, 2020, the Task Forces will draft school re-opening guidance that is reflective of safety factors, family needs, student learning, and teacher professional development. The guidance is intended to reflect the flexibility necessary for local control and decision-making while providing a framework of options for local communities.

The final recommendations from the Task Forces will be presented to the Superintendent and the Montana School Safety Advisory Committee for inclusion in broader state guidance documents for schools.
