Will Colorado schools reopen in the fall or will remote learning continue?

posted by:

Denver metro area school districts are starting to plan for the 2020-2021 school year, which means considering the possibility that schools could remain closed.

Douglas County School District Superintendent Thomas Tucker addressed the issue in a virtual town hall Thursday night.

“We are looking at the possibility of continuing remote learning in the fall,” he said. “We hope not, but at the same time we have to be prepared if that does happen.”

Tucker said much will depend on what happens over the next month, as the state lifts the stay-at-home order and some businesses return to in-person operations. Many metro area school districts are making plans for in-person graduation ceremonies later this summer. But districts say they’ll be waiting for guidance from the state and health officials to finalize summer and fall school plans.
