A day after starting in-person classes last week, a Windward Oʻahu charter school reported three positive COVID-19 cases.

The Conversation reached out to the State Public Charter School Commission to learn about what it is hearing from the classrooms. Its COVID cases are reported to both the Department of Health and the Department of Education, but they are not compiled on any website.

HPR's Catherine Cruz talked to PJ Foehr, interim deputy director of the State Public Charter School Commission, about the protocols for charter schools.

This interview aired on The Conversation on Aug. 10, 2021.
