How is Corona affecting schools in Utah? This question I have been wondering but never really looked into it. I know the plan Judge came out with was way different than the school next to my house. I wondered what other ideas people have had and implemented.
In an article called “Here’s how some of Utah’s biggest school districts plan to reopen” from the Salt Lake City Tribune. It is all about different school districts’ plans this year. The first District it discusses is the Canyons School District. They plan to do mostly all in-person classes however kids/parents can choose to do some or all online if they choose to. The Granite school district is having parents choose between all online classes or all in-person classes. It will also be providing a chrome book if needed or if they don’t have internet access they can provide the children with a hotspot. In the Alpine school district, students can go Monday through Friday but they get out an hour early so teachers can plan. For online students, they can do material from the school or straight from the district. It continues talking about the Jordan, Murray, Salt Lake City, Alpine, and Davis School Districts.
Each plan throughout Utah is a little different. Schools are trying their best to make things safe for all children despite their conditions. Many districts have a hybrid option available if they are offering in-person classes. Salt Lake City School District is the only one in the state to be going all online, according to the article from the Salt Lake City Tribune. They are trying to provide everything they can to the students, some even including hotspots. The safety of the Children and the staff is the number one priority. The next question would be which system has so far been the most effective as far as still learning as much as usual and keeping the people safe.
