School districts and Western New York superintendents are getting ready for three different options of how to execute learning. Either remote, in-class learning, or a little bit of both to get efficient learning done.

Governor Cuomo last week said the State Department of Health is going to have a plan to announce guidelines to help the 700 districts in New York will need to create reopening plans. According to WGRZ and the Niagara Falls City School District Superintendent Mark Laurrie said:

This week coming up, we're going to get more information on the requirements for opening schools in September. In the meantime, district leaders have been preparing for three different options: remote learning, in-class learning, and a hybrid of both. I think all of the three options have to be on the table, and I think it really should be a regional approach. I didn't say a district-by-district approach. I said a regional approach, based on where you are, based on what the numbers say."
