County, Florida, the eighth largest district in the country, will announce its decision on August 3. Its school board has previously rejected a virtual learning plan for the first nine weeks of school.
Here’s how the other major school districts, as of Thursday, are planning to reopen as they go with the Covid-19 pandemic.
Students will be required to practice social distance and wear surface coatings. There will be “greater access and regular opportunities” for hand washing and health.
Families can also opt for all online instruction.
Some districts that have opted for all-digital instruction, including Clark County, Nevada, and Gwinnett County, Georgia, have said they will review their decision periodically while assessing the spread of virus in their communities.
At least three of these – Palm Beach County in Florida, Houston and Gwinnett County – have forced back the planned start date so they can better prepare for digital instruction only.
Here are the 10 districts that offer online only:
Los Angeles Unified – The district changes its initial decision to offer a hybrid model.
Clark County, Nevada
Broward County, Florida
Houston Independent School District – The district is only online until at least October 19th.
Palm Beach County, Florida
Fairfax County, Virginia
Gwinnett County, Georgia – Gwinnett reversed its initial decision to offer either / or.
Wake County, North Carolina
Montgomery County, Maryland – Online only for the entire fall semester, by at least January 29, 2021.
This report will be updated as school district plans change.
