  • One at One: Virtual Learning in 2021-2022

Today’s Issue by Lena Kim:

Whether school districts can offer virtual learning options for the 2021-2022 school year?

Answer:

Yes. Although Governor Murphy initially stated on March 24, 2021 that New Jersey school districts will return to full in-person classes and will not be allowed to offer virtual learning, he later clarified his statement on March 30, 2021 that students and teaching staff with certain health conditions, which place them at greater risk of getting severely ill from COVID-19, will have virtual options available to them. Governor Murphy further clarified that it will be up to the individual school districts to determine which individuals will be allowed to participate in virtual learning and how the virtual set up will be structured.
