Dear Team PDE,

Today, Dauphin County transitioned into the yellow phase under Governor Wolf’s Process to Reopen Pennsylvania. As PDE’s headquarters are in this county, I want to provide you with updates on what to expect as this phased reopening continues.

Among PDE’s core values is a commitment to creating and preserving a healthy and safe work environment for all staff. That guiding principle has been at the forefront of all the decisions we have made since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to be the primary focus as we move forward.

Until further notice, all staff able to telework will continue to telework in the yellow and green phases.

We continue to develop the following plans and will share with Team PDE upon their completion:

  1. A phased plan for the return to the offices at 333 Market Street and other satellite locations.
  2. A permanent PDE Telework Plan to be implemented when Pennsylvania’s pandemic response is complete.

Supervisors: please share this message with employees who do not have access to email.

Thank you for all you continue to do to support the educational needs of the commonwealth as we navigate this unique situation together.
