What will school look like next year?
It's a tough question for area Superintendents to answer because they anticipate schools being fully reopened and school days returning to normal schedules but what the COVID cosmetics will be is unanswered. Clinton Schools Superintendent Curt Nettles says they are still waiting on the guidelines.
Nettles, along with his peers across the area, are planning for a full reopening of school with full days and all kids back in class. He anticipates continued masking of everyone and hopes for lessened distancing to make school days flow better.
While remote learning instruction has not been released, Nettles believes there will not be widely available remote learning except for the extraordinary circumstance.
Looking ahead, Nettles believes everyone in education is much more knowledgeable about how to efficiently teach kids under the circumstances but emphasizes in-person learning is best for everyone.
