The Good News: Our PSPA board is working on a plan that will still allow our student finalists to compete for the state championships. We are meeting again next week to review statewide coronavirus impact and to keep developing our competition plans. Our board knows that it is important to establish a fair timeline for a remote finals competition. Many of these details are contingent on how this situation evolves over the next few days. We will contact the advisers of student finalists with some updated information by Friday, March 20
Until then, we’d love to hear from you. Our board had a lively discussion at tonight’s meeting about all the ways that coronavirus impacts our schools. If there is information that you would like us to know as we develop these plans, please reach out. And if your students publish journalism about the evolving coronavirus situation in your community, please send it our way—we’d love to feature some of these stories on our social channels.
We will get this done... for the kids. Stay tuned, and stay safe.
