Arizona

For many Arizona families, classroom will be kitchen or living room for the first few months of the school year. But the majority of kids will return to classroom virtually. Some will go back in person but not immediately. Last week, Gov. Doug Ducey unveiled a plan to reopen schools based on Public Health data. The Arizona Department of Health Services must set data benchmarks for schools to follow by Aug. 7. That means data, not dates, will drive the decision to reopen. By time Ducey had made his announcement, many districts had already made plans to reopen. For some, Ducey's announcement didn't change anything. Others push back target reopening dates for in - person classes, noting that they d ultimately rely on Public Health benchmarks, now in development. Q &: What does Arizona's school reopening plan mean for students, parents and teachers? Schools also must decide how they fulfill requirements in Ducey's order to provide on - site learning opportunities starting Aug. 17 for students who need a place to go during the day.

California

Los Angeles and San Diego unified school systems announced that they ll be going online only at the start of fall semester, according to a joint statement. One fact is clear: those countries that have managed to safely reopen schools have done so with declining infection rates and on - demand testing available. California has neither. Skyrocketing infection rates of past few weeks make it clear the pandemic is not under control, statement read. Announcements from the two largest school systems in California come after statements by President Donald Trump pressuring schools to reopen in - person classes in fall. Last week, Trump threatened to cut off funding for school districts that don't reopen, Business Insider's Eliza Relman report. He's claimed that efforts to keep schools close and online in fall were political and not based on limiting the spread of coronavirus. We don't want people to make political statements or do it for political reasons. They think it's going to be good for them politically, so they keep schools close. No way, he said during a press conference last week. So we are really very much going to put pressure on governors and everybody else to open schools, to get them open. Two California districts add that they will continue planning to return to in - person learning during the 2020 - 21 academic year, as soon as public health conditions allow. Schools across the US closed their doors and transition to online learning earlier this year as the coronavirus spread across the nation. As fall approaches, school districts have taken several approaches to education in fall, with some saying they will fully re - open for in - person classes and others implementing staggering learning with both in - person and online classes.

Colorado

Colorado's largest schools lose contact with thousands of students during spring remote learning prompted by the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Colorado Sun survey of the state largest districts, and are now rewriting attendance protocols and scrambling to acquire technology to make sure it doesnt happen again. Districts fell out of touch with students ' families despite their extensive efforts to reach them in any way they could through phone calls, text messages, emails and, in some cases, home visits. Those who likely stand to lose most academic ground include Black and Hispanic students as well as students from low - income households, according to a study by national consulting firm McKinsey & Co. Many students will only continue to suffer this coming school year if schools continue to oscillate between opening and closing because of the pandemic. Students who do get any instruction in any capacity during remote learning will lose 12 - 14 months of academic progress this next school year if schools continue to experience closures for health and safety, study say. And opportunity gaps that have historically stood between low - income and high - income students have persist, with 60% of low - income kids regularly accessing remote learning software, compared to 90% of high - income kids, according to data from Curriculum Associates, which develops i - Ready digital teaching and assessing software. Colorado districts like Aurora Public Schools have used software in their approach to remote learning. Academic stakes for districts are high, and part of districts ' back - to - School plans include trying to regain contact with those students who didnt log on for remote learning in spring. Some districts have task teachers with helping reach all students who are lining up for fall courses regardless of how much they engaged last year. Sun requested data from the 10 largest districts in Colorado, seeking the number of students districts could not reach during remote learning in spring and details on how attendance was defined and manage. Nine respond. Academy School District 20, in El Paso County, has not replied to multiple inquiries about data. Much of work begins in summer as districts rely on methods similar to what they use in spring to get hold of families. Reasons for losing contact are diverse. In Douglas County School District, for instance, families report lack of engagement because of parents feeling overwhelm, struggles with technology or the internet, need to share devices within families, conflicts with work, no motivation and changes to dynamics at home. Some districts are also moving forward with stricter accountability system around attendance for fall than their approach in spring. As districts race to iron out remote learning system starting in March, attendance policies fell by the wayside. Some districts, like Adams 12 Five Star Schools in Thornton, measure attendance and engagement once a week based on students completing tasks and turning in assignments.
