BRAC’s April 30 COVID-19 Brief: Return to work: Reopening schools

As the business community and state leaders think through what it will take to reopen the Louisiana economy, one thing is clear: any return to work must come together with a return to school and childcare. As BRAC writes about in our Safe at Work framework, parents and guardians will only be able to return to the workforce outside their homes if safe childcare is available.

To help BRAC analyze the complex landscape and to ground federal and state guidance in practical application, BRAC reached out to Sarah Broome, founder and executive director of Thrive Academy, a special state school located in Baton Rouge. Here, Ms. Broome provides details about Thrive’s plan to reopen and the health and safety protocols it has started implementing.
