As the beginning of the upcoming school year looms – amid much fear, anxiety, and uncertainty – Vermont-NEA members have been busy preparing for a fall that none of us has ever experienced. Over the summer, members have attended virtual town halls (two with the state’s top health officials) and appeared on radio programs, participated in interviews, and have been featured in stories across the state.

Below are links to many of those events, as well as an extensive set of answers to members’ health and safety questions posed to Vermont Health Commissioner Dr. Mark Levine during our reopening town halls.
