Due to the current Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, which has caused many declarations by the Governor and health organizations, the Superintendent finds that there is an imminent danger and a need to protect public health, safety and/or welfare for the reasons as stated during the Board workshop held on July 30, 2020.
