I put this in politics due to some states doing a complete political agenda on opening.

Our school opens 08-31-2020. The earliest it ever has.

What is your area doing?

I'm told that staff and teachers went back yesterday,  and students will have their first day on Aug 24.

My grand niece starts in 20AUG in the LA metro area. That district is still unsure of what they're doing for remote vs in-person. My nephew in law told me a bunch of parents, including him, have formed "mini-schools" in which they will hire teachers themselves to tutor smaller groups of their kids in-person at homes or wherever  if the schools don't go back to in-person.

Apparently a big problem there has been that the schools have been doing virtual classrooms that entail sending the kids a bunch of homework but not providing teacher resources to help them, and the parents, without any guidance as to what the school wants, have no idea how to help their kids with their lessons.

My daughter is a teacher in a large metro school district here in Oklahoma. They go back either next week or the week after. So far they have not finalized just how they are going to do it as to in person, virtual and/or a combination there of.

A younger friend across town told me the [public] school his daughter is in is going to open, but instead of classrooms they are going to put all the kids in the gymnasium. The floor will be taped off into boxes, and each kid will not be allowed to leave his/her assigned box except at recess. Masks will be mandatory, and there will be mask and box police monitors patrolling the gymnasium and the playground.

I'm having difficulty imagining a more dystopian image of "school."

That is quite a bit more dystopian and dysfunctional than anything I've heard about here.

Our local school district made virtual school available for any parent that wanted it, and is moving desks 6 feet apart in the classrooms for kids that are going to school.  According to their plan masks will be mandatory  "when social distancing is not possible " so I guess moving between classes and lunch/recess?

We might actually get the smaller class sizes everyone has wanted for so long.

School district just decided to go online only to start,, and will reevaluate as they go. Teachers are a mix of "we'll die if we go back" and "open it up so I can be back with my studebts."  Both of my sons are college students.  Oldest attends Miami University in Ohio.  They are going online knky to at least Sept. 21, no students allowed on campus.   Youngest is a new student at University of Cincinnati,  and he moves into his dorm on August 16.  A week of band camp (he's a marching band nerd), with classes starting a week later.  Will be a mix of online and in person.

Since many parts of Washington are considered hot spots right now, in the majority of the urban counties in Western Washington, the county health officer has recommended remote instruction only to start, and the schools are following suit.  My wife's district is continuing the remote instruction they started back in March.  My wife is not happy with this insofar as she believes that face to face, especially with elementary school students, is important for engagement, support and being able to figure out problems with the kids and how to solve them.  This is all much more difficult over Zoom. A lot of the local colleges and universities are also starting with remote instruction.

PS: My wife's district also has a school bond levy up this fall, and the general consensus now with the schools not opening, there is no way in heck the levy will pass.

PPS: On the local FB pages, I am amused to see the wailing and gnashing of teeth from some teachers about imminent death if school were to open; my colleagues and I go to work every day to take care of sick people.  Although admittedly you will see a lot of the same wailing and gnashing of teeth from the healthcare staff, too.

I saw this *expletive deleted*ing bullshit posted today by a far leftie I know. They seem to have forgotten it was them who have long pushed for schools to take the role of parents...plus no school system in this country is underfunded by a cent. Administrations sucking up that money before it gets to the classroom? Yes, lots of that going on. But throwing more money at that will only enrichen those already profiting off the system, not make it better for the students and teachers

Exactly how much money is all that going to take?  Can they answer that?  I think whatever answer anyone else comes up with will never been enough.

Well, Arizona is consistantly at the @$$ end of school funding for quite a while.  We have a rotation with Arkansas and Mississippi for last place.  2008 was the high dollar mark for funding in the last 12 years--that figure is NOT adjusted for inflation either.

^^Why do you think that is for Arizona?  Is it all the retirees without children that don't want to pay for schools?

As difficult as this period may be, perhaps this is the time for parents to take back control of their children's educations from the Left-wing monster now razing our public schools.

I've seen some articles talking about how this will leave certain kids at a disadvantage as some schools open and others don't. Wonder how long until the left starts really using this.

The think what has got me the most is the places not opening schools but are going to use the schools as daycare centers up to ten hours a day and have adults there to help the kids do their online classes. You mean like a school?

All the teachers unions crying they will all die if they open must be so much more important than the lady that rings me up at the grocery store every two weeks.
