The Racine Unified School District said it plans on 100 percent remote learning to start off the 2020-2021 school year.
The district said remote learning will go through the first quarter, which ends on Nov. 6.
"This decision was not made lightly. An RUSD Re-Entry Planning Team made up of more than 150 District administrators, teachers, community members and parents, has been planning for a safe return to school since May. The team has worked tirelessly to put together a plan that meets the academic and social/emotional needs of our students while keeping everyone safe," the district said in a press release Friday.
“We know that face-to-face learning is best for our students,” Superintendent Dr. Eric Gallien said. “And we’re committed to doing so when we know it is a safe decision. In the meantime, we are committed to providing a robust remote learning experience for every student.”
Detailed information will be provided to parents in the coming weeks, the district says.
