In the News: SFUSD just released new details on the reopening plan for San Francisco schools

San Francisco school officials on Monday released more details about their plans to get some of the city’s more than 52,000 schoolchildren back into classrooms this spring after a year of distance learning that left many families struggling and sparked a lawsuit over reopening schools.

Under the plan, starting April 12, some students in lower grades would return for four full days and one partial day each week while others would return two full days a week and spend three days in distance learning, depending on the level of demand for in-person learning at each school. The plan brings back preschool through fifth-graders, and special education students and other vulnerable groups through high school, by the end of April. Families can also choose to remain in distance learning. Read more here.
