    Massachusetts is aiming to have elementary school students back to on-campus learning five days a week by April. Jeffrey Riley, commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, announced the new goal Tuesday during a Department of Education meeting, CBS Boston reports. Riley said he plans to request that the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education remove the remote and hybrid schooling options offered since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, citing decreasing COVID-19 cases and the availability of pool testing for school districts, among other factors.  "At some point, as health metrics continue to improve, we will need to take remote and hybrid learning models off the table," Riley said, according to WCVB.

Under the state's plan outlined by Riley, parents...
    All public Massachusetts elementary school students may be back in class this April. On Tuesday, Feb. 23, the Massachusetts Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education Jeffrey Riley made the announcement during a morning meeting.

Riley cited ongoing vaccinations and declining COVID-19 infections as reasons for having all students resume in-school education. Right now, Massachusetts school districts are making their own decisions, in conjunction with local authorities, about whether to offer an education that is fully-remote, a hybrid of in-class and out-of-class education, or a full in-classroom instruction. The option to have students learn from home was made available in fall 2020 as COVID-19 infections ramped up from September and going through the winter holidays. Riley said he will not push...

    Every elementary school in Minnesota might be able to reopen safely on at least a part-time basis, according to new coronavirus case rates released Thursday by the Department of Health. Under school reopening guidelines released last week, Lincoln, Murray and Pipestone counties had too many new cases per 10,000 residents for school leaders to consider sending anyone back to school. But those case rates since have fallen somewhat. Now, school officials in all three counties should consider bringing elementary school students back at least part of the time, according to state guidelines. The state updates its county-level case data every Thursday, so school leaders will have new information before many districts start the new school year. Some already have decided how the start of school will look. Gov. Tim Walz has said the case data is just one of many factors leaders should consider when deciding which modes of instruction...
