Hillsborough County, Florida, the eighth largest district in the country, will announce its decision on August 3. His school board had previously rejected a virtual education plan for the first nine weeks of school.
Thus, on Thursday, they plan to reopen other large school districts when they face the Covid-19 pandemic.
Students will need to practice social distancing and wear face masks. There will be “increased access and regular opportunities” for hand washing and disinfection.
Families can also choose an all-online instruction.
Some of the counties that have opted for fully digital education, including Clark County, Nevada and Gwinnett County, Georgia, have said they will review their decision regularly to assess the spread of viruses in their communities.
At least three of them – Palm Beach County in Florida, Houston and Gwinnett County – have postponed the planned start date so that they can better prepare for teaching in digital format only.
Here are 10 districts offering online only:
Los Angeles Unified – The district annulled its original decision to offer a hybrid model.
Clark County, Nevada
Broward County, Florida
Houston Independent School District – The district is only online until October 19.
Palm Beach County, Florida
Fairfax County, Virginia
Gwinnett County, Georgia – Gwinnett annulled its initial decision to offer a tender or.
Wake County, North Carolina
Montgomery County, Maryland – Only online throughout the autumn semester, at least until 29 January 2021.
