(WBNG) -- The New York State Department of Education released its health and safety guide for school districts for the 2021 to 22 school year.

The Department of Education said that the guide is "based on the best health and safety information" that is currently available. They said the guidance will be modified as public health conditions change.

Chancellor Lester W. Young said in a news release:

“As we prepare for schools to reopen in September, our priority must be to provide leaders with access to information about practices that have proven effective throughout the pandemic. The Department’s health and safety guide is a concise resource that will assist districts as they mitigate risks to the health and safety of students, teachers and school staff while providing flexibility for schools to address their own unique circumstances in a manner that best meets the needs of all students.”

The full guidance is posted below:
