When the school year started with distance learning, many schools were under the impression that kids will go back to in-person school for the spring semester. However, with the increase in coronavirus cases in California, the San Bernardino school system is the first school district to announce they will not not reopen its campuses for the remainder of the school year. The San Bernardino County Board of Education voted to extend campus shutdowns. The district said in an online announcement,
“The board’s decision is consistent with its steadfast commitment to safety for students and employees. This decision will enable district staff to focus greater resources toward strengthening distance learning while also allowing families to better plan.”
San Bernardino is the state’s eighth-largest school district, with about 47,000 students, may be the first, but others could follow as districts throughout California including Los Angeles Unified. Other school districts have yet to make decisions on whether or when they will fully reopen for in-person classes.
