BPS High-Need Students Will Not Return To Classrooms This Week

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — After some initial confusion, Boston Public Schools said it will not be opening back up classrooms tomorrow for select high-needs students.

During a city council hearing this week, Superintendent Dr. Brenda Cassellius said some of Boston's high-needs students could be back in class as soon as Thursday.

The possibility of returning so soon came as a surprise to the Boston Teacher's Union and president Jessica Tang, who said the hearing was the first time she had heard about the plan publicly.

This morning, BPS said that plan would not be going ahead. Instead, the district is working with teachers and educators to construct an approach that will provide in-person services for students with the highest needs.

BPS said it will provide families with an update as soon as the plan is fully developed.
