What Is The Plan For The Upcoming Minnesota School Year?
The Coronavirus has effected many aspects of life, including academics. Looking head to the next school year what is the plan going forward?
There are a lot of questions being asked about what classes will look like this upcoming school year. While no official decision has been made yet, according to Bring Me the News, a decision will be made by late July.
The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) is looking at three different possibilities for what the 2020-2021 school year will look like. Those scenarios include:
- All Students return to in person learning
- A Hybrid Model of Online and in person learning
- Only distance learning
With many districts have already started planning for the upcoming year, the MDE has given the school districts guidance so they can work on a contingency plan for all three of the proposed options learning. In March, schools moved to an online only model for learning which caused a lot of problems and frustrations for the students, teachers and the parents.
A decision on the what way the MDE plans to go with the 2020-2021 school year will be announced by the week of July 27th.
