According to Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, individual school districts will be able to decide what they want to do for the 2020 school year.
During a press conference on Thursday, Gov. Tim Walz announced that school districts and charter schools will be deciding what model they will be using for the 2020 school year with COVID-19 still remaining a concern.
Walz was quoted as saying,
“As a classroom teacher for more than 20 years and a parent of a child in public schools, I am committed to providing a world-class education to our students while keeping them and their teachers safe. With this approach, we are pairing the knowledge and data from our Departments of Health and Education with the expertise of our local school districts to make the best decisions for our students across the state.”
