St. Paul school board approves remote learning plan
August 6, 2020
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.
