The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) will make the decision during the week of July 27. All MN public schools will be required to adhere to this decision.
On Wednesday, July 22, Governor Walz ordered masks to be worn in schools.
- Distance Learning Model: This is how school operated from March 30 to May 31 with instruction being done while students remain at home
- Back to School as Normal: This would be bringing everyone back to school in full attendance.
- Hybrid Model: This is a model that is in between the two previously listed, where some students attend one day, others attend another, etc.
Please note that per the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE), given local pandemic circumstances, it is possible that schools could use all three models throughout the year.
