St. Paul Public Schools Superintendent Joe Gothard, pictured at a news conference in 2018, said that he did not believe the district was ready to reopen safely and efficiently.

The St. Paul school board on Wednesday signed off on plans for a virtual start to the 2020-21 school year.

The state's second-largest district joins a strong majority of urban school systems in choosing to open the year with distance learning.

A Star Tribune review of 67 member districts of the Council of the Great City Schools showed that 47 had elected to stick with remote learning, seven will make full in-person instruction available and nine are offering a hybrid of the two, according to data compiled by the publication Education Week. Four districts are undecided.
