I’ve done so many jobs in WashingtonCountyschools, held a lot of positions, and it just feels like the right time,” Fla nary said. Fla nary has served in various roles from teaching to positions at central office to being the Assistant Director of Schools before the BOE approved a contact with him in November 2018.

In July, Chen and TP CHD issued a recommendation that all schools across Pierce County should plan for remote learning due to the ongoing pandemic and increasing daily cases across Washington. Shortly after the recommendation, on August 5, Washington Governor Jay Inslee provided framework for schools looking to reopen for in-person classes, but on August 12, Chen issued another letter stating that his previous recommendation was a requirement, and both public and private schools in the county must hold online classes only.
According to the News Tribune, the lawsuit also states that “scientific studies suggest that COVID-19 transmission among children in schools may be low,” and that “remote learning leads to severe learning loss and makes absorbing information more difficult for students with disabilities, developmental delays, or other cognitive disabilities.” “According to the state Department of Health's decision tree, when the community transmission of disease drops below a total 14-day case rate of 75 per 100,000 and the test positivity rate is below 5%, schools can consider in-person learning for elementary students then gradually add hybrid in-person learning for middle or high school students,” the statement added.
