Statewide Iowa — The director of the state Department of Education says Iowa’s schools are getting a new option, to offer on-site courses and activities this summer, instead of just online learning.
Ann Lebo says they’re ironing out ways to enable schools statewide to safely proceed toward reopening to students.
(As above) “Starting June 1st, school districts and non-public schools may begin offering summer learning activities for students, such as summer school, academic enrichment programs and activity-based camps like STEM, robotics and drama, among others.”
It won’t be like the pre-pandemic era, though. Lebo says students and staff will be screened upon arrival, briefed on hygiene, classes will be smaller and they’ll be distanced.
