(Back to) Back to School: A Legal and Liability Follow Up to Reopen Your Schools


While we understand that the Governor’s orders have specifically barred schools (both public & private) from reopening without a waiver, we are hopeful that we can provide tools for you to continue to serve the educational and spiritual needs of your community in as safe a manner as possible.  

We have been working to develop a model faith based learning center program.  However, because of so many variances exist from location to location, we are asking that you contact panelist, Mike Porrazzo if this is something that you’d like to design with his assistance:
