St. Paul Superintendent Says School Year Will Start With Distanced Learning


MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — St. Paul Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Joe Gothard announced Thursday evening that he’s recommending to the school board that the St. Paul district will begin the school year with 100% distanced learning, joining Minneapolis in staying completely online at least to start the year.

Gothard said that the district has been working on scenarios for how to return to school this fall since May.

“There will be a successful reopening in our future, we just don’t know when today,” Gothard said. “In March, we didn’t know how long this would last, this being COVID-19, and here we are approaching August, and in many cases we’re still right where we were. Instead of blaming people, instead of saying it’s because of this, I’m saying to our community lets do better, St. Paul. Let’s do better, Minnesota, and let’s make sure we’re wearing masks, practicing hygiene, and practicing social distancing.”
