News Release
Superintendents argue for higher prioritization of vaccinations for educators - 01/11/21

Southwest Washington’s two largest school districts, Evergreen and Vancouver public schools, are urging health officials and Gov. Jay Inslee to re-prioritize vaccinations for educators. Both districts plan to begin returning more students to classrooms for in-person learning beginning Jan. 19 in accordance with the governor and Washington state Department of Health’s latest guidelines.

The current vaccination schedule gives school district employees the opportunity for vaccination in February or April 2021 depending on age. Superintendents Mike Merlino, Evergreen, and Steve Webb, Vancouver, are advocating for consolidation of the vaccination windows. In the attached letter to Gov. Inslee and health officials, the superintendents asked that all school district employees, regardless of age, be placed in Phase 1, B2, of the state’s vaccination schedule, allowing this group to be vaccinated in February. 

“In addition to the Center for Disease Control COVID mitigation strategies, vaccinating all preK–12 employees at the same time will add another layer of protection for our staff, students and families,” said Superintendent Steve Webb. 

To assist this effort, the districts have offered the help of trained staff and the use of their facilities as vaccination sites.

Evergreen and Vancouver are among the state of Washington’s 10 largest school districts. Combined the districts employ about 6,600 staff members and serve approximately 50,000 students.

Information about the district’s plans for hybrid learning is available on Vancouver and Evergreen’s websites.
