CDC’s School Decision-Making Tool for Parents, Caregivers and Guardians

Many parents, caregivers, and guardians face new and difficult choices about how their child will return to school in the fall, such as deciding between in-person and virtual learning.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides this tool to help parents, caregivers, and guardians weigh the risks and benefits of available educational options to help them make decisions about sending their child back to school. It is organized to provide parents and caregivers with tools to help assess their child’s and family’s risk of COVID-19 and considerations that will help them make a choice, if offered, of instructional format and more.
