Assembly bill would require school year to begin remotely

BY Briana Vannozzi, Senior Correspondent |

There’s no shortage of ideas for how a September school year start might look. And no matter the plan, it’s almost certain that not everyone will be happy. A bill pending in the Legislature is creating debate by proposing to keep all K-12 schools closed until the end of October, and instead require virtual, contactless learning. Only special education services would be given in person.

Senior Correspondent Briana Vannozzi talks about the plan with one of the bill’s sponsors, Democratic Assemblywoman Mila Jasey.
