Summer School, Graduation Ceremonies Possible Under June Directed Health Measures

Summer School, Graduation Ceremonies Possible Under June Directed Health Measures

In-person summer school classes, as well as late graduations, may be possible under a new Directed Health Measures that take effect in June.

At Friday’s gubernatorial COVID-19 media briefing, State Education Commissioner Mat Blomstead said the idea wasn’t completely far-fetched.

“At least some in-person possibilities are going to be there,” said Blomstedt.

He added that when in-person learning resumes, schools will follow a 15-student per room rule.

Blomsted said, first and foremost, schools want to return to in-person learning for those students who need it most, such as those with special needs and those for whom remote learning is less than ideal.
