D.C. Working on Plans to Begin In-Person School in November

D.C. officials are working on plans to begin a hybrid schooling model that could have students back to in-person classes in November.

Mayor Muriel Bowser said the public school system has a goal of blending in-person and virtual learning after Nov. 6, with Nov. 9 targeted as a potential start date, WRC-TV (Channel 4) reported.

“I understand [the school system] has in hand and is reviewing … at least a dozen proposals from principals,” the mayor said, WRC reported.

The city is also planning how the first round of any coronavirus vaccine would be distributed once available.

D.C. Health Director LaQuandra S. Nesbitt said the federal government has sent the city a template advising how to organize the process of inoculating the District’s population.

Nesbitt said she expects “a safe and effective” vaccine near early 2021, saying priority groups will get the medication first and the District’s vaccination framework will include public-private partnerships, WRC reported.
