A coalition of public education union members has called on the governor to provide a clear and uniform policy for how school districts across Connecticut should handle quarantines and paid leave requests. The group contends too many school districts are not following procedures established by health experts and are disregarding the state Education Commissioner Miguel Cardona’s recommendation that educators’ requests to work remotely are accommodated.

“A statewide mandate is necessary because recent actions show that districts cannot be trusted to “do the right thing,” the group wrote.

The group is also calling for the public health provisions of Lamont’s previous COVID-19 executive orders to continue through the end of the current school year.
