Currently, about 20% of districts are still fully remote, impacting about 400,000 students.

Riley stated in his plan that districts could take an incremental approach “for instance, to first move to a robust hybrid model” if the students have been fully remote.

Parents would have the option for their children to learn remotely through the end of the year.
