Gov. Polis Says Schools Will Likely Be Closed the Remainder of Year
Gov. Polis stated in a press release yesterday that it was likely that schools would remain closed throughout the remainder of the school year across Colorado.
“All school districts… should prepare for traditional in classroom instruction to not return this school year,” said Polis. “I like to be an optimist, so it is possible, very unlikely.”
Schools in Colorado were officially closed two weeks ago, and many classrooms are slowly shifting to online learning as they transition from spring break.
“I think as much as possible, we want to make sure that everybody has access to similar resources, but our plan also includes ways to provide instruction that don’t require that,” said Tamara Acevedo, Deputy Superintendent of Academics for Denver Public Schools.
