Local school districts have been developing their Smart Start plans for the upcoming school year that should begin next month.

Each school district must be prepared for three possibilities that would include in-school attendance, remote learning, or a hybrid of model encompassing both.

The plans may also include how fall activities are impacted should remote learning be implemented.
