Native schools in Minneapolis prepare to open during pandemic, bemoan online learning hassle
July 20, 2020
Although American Indian schools in Minneapolis are awaiting a state mandate on reopening this fall amid the coronavirus pandemic, a consensus is that distance learning will continue in some form – at least initially.
Minn. Gov. Tim Walz is expected to announce measures in late July that will have schools either reopening fully, continuing with distance learning or a hybrid of the two.
But the Bdote Learning Center has already decided to begin its new quarter July 29 with distance learning – the same way it ended the previous quarter June 4 after the pandemic forced a statewide closure of schools in March.
