Description of Proposed Guidance Document Changes
On March 23rd, Governor Ralph Northam ordered all K-12 schools in Virginia to close for the remainder of the academic year as a response to the continued spread of COVID-19. Under the Governor's order, private day schools are required to be closed. The impact of the state of emergency on contractual arrangements with service providers through the CSA remain a matter of local jurisdiction. The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has advised local school divisions to work with their local Community Policy and Management Teams (CPMT), local CSA office and partnering private schools to discuss this matter. The Office of Children’s Services (OCS) has also been clear in communication that funds are able to reimburse localities for services as agreed to by the local CSA program, local school division, and private providers. There is no issued guidance from VDOE or OCS that would serve as a barrier for providing services to students served in private settings. Due to the declared state of emergency, this guidance is effective immediately, March 30, 2020.
