Most NJ Schools Going Remote
The list of New Jersey school districts asking the state to let them start the school year with all-virtual classes is growing as local officials reconsider their plans in the wake of Gov. Phil Murphy’s announcement that the state is revising its reopening guidelines. Murphy said Wednesday the state’s nearly 600 districts can ask to delay the start of in-person classes if they can prove to the state Department of Education that they can’t meet the social distancing and safety guidelines released by the state in June. Students in all districts continue to have the option of choosing all-remote learning at home, even if their school is holding in-person classes, under the state’s guidelines. Merchantville School's Re-opening plan was approved by the Board of Education on July 28th and the completed plan is here.
