TEA and PSE Updates
- Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) has updated the guidance regarding athletics for this school year. On November 17, 2020, the WIAA executive board amended the current season schedule for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year, opting to delay the start of WIAA Season 2 to February 1 and shorten each WIAA Season to seven weeks in length.
Schools will only be allowed to participate if the school is open to in-person learning and has a county caseload under 25 per 100,000 residents for two weeks. November 17, 2020, Updated Guidelines: PE needs to go back to wearing masks for all activities based on our new guidance from the state.
