Timeline for Reopening of Schools

    On Friday, March 5, 2021, the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) met and voted to adopt a recommendation giving Commissioner Riley the authority to return Elementary students to full-time, in-person school on April 5, 2021 and April 28, 2021 for students in grades 5-8. This means that students who return to in-person learning will be in school five days a week every day.
