Murphy approves some schools to start with all-remote option
August 14, 2020
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy said Wednesday that schools that cannot meet health and safety guidelines for an in-person start to the academic year can go with an all-remote option.
The first-term Democratic governor said he will also soon sign an executive order that paves the way for the state’s roughly 600 schools to begin in-person instruction in September.
The ability for some schools to start entirely remotely is a change from the governor’s June guidance, which required all schools to have in-person instruction.
