Secretary Cardona to Conclude 'Help is Here' School Reopening Tour and Deliver Remarks on School Reopening at Amidon-Bowen Elementary School in Washington, D.C.

On Friday, April 30, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona will conclude the "Help is Here" School Reopening Tour, with a visit to Amidon-Bowen Elementary School in Washington, D.C. After the visit, Secretary Cardona will deliver remarks on what he saw throughout the tour and the Biden Administration's efforts to reopen the majority of schools within its first 100 days.

The "Help is Here" tour is part of the Biden-Harris Administration's broader effort to support states, schools, students, parents, and educators as they navigate returning to in-person learning and highlight how the American Rescue Plan will aid them in these efforts. Since launching the tour last month, Secretary Cardona has visited eight schools across seven states, where he has seen and heard about both successes and challenges schools are facing as they work to reopen for in-person learning this spring.
