FUSD To Revisit Reopening Plan Tonight

The Flagstaff Unified School District will discuss a reopening plan again tonight at its governing board meeting. Last week, Superintendent Michael Penca announced three options for parents to choose from when students return to school on August 13th. However, the state moved the start of school back until August 17th earlier this week. Option one is in-person learning, or a return to classrooms for K-through-12. Penca says there will be safety guidelines in place with that option, which includes daily health screenings, temperature checks and mandatory mask wearing. Option Two is a flexible remote learning plan for students K-through-12. With this plan, students would start out at home and can transfer into school if need be. Parents who select option one will have the option to switch the student into option two. Option Three is distance learning through Northern Arizona Distance Learning. The board wanted to work on the plan some more and talk about it again today. The plan was not adopted and the board will discuss it again in a special session today at 5 p.m. You can watch the session online on FUSD’s Facebook page.
