- Not much in the way of clips today. Kudos to Jeremy Kelley, as always, for being thorough in his reporting—including district, charter, and private schools in this roundup of school reopening plans (the ones that are currently known, that is) in the Dayton area. (Dayton Daily News, 7/20/20)
- I draw attention to the fact that school reopening plans are likely subject to change from where they currently stand. Case in point, Columbus City Schools indicated over the weekend that its previously-announced plan (call it Hybrid Minus, perhaps) could still be scrapped in favor of an all-online school year if pandemic conditions warrant. It is interesting to note in this regard that “about 1,000 of the district’s nearly 50,000 students have enrolled in” a fully-online option already, according to Superintendent Talisa Dixon. However, since the original plan was for all high school students to go fully online anyway, seems like that number should probably be a little higher. Or perhaps this process is just a bit too fluid right now for accurate number crunching. (Columbus Dispatch, 7/20/20)
