Gov. Murphy said Monday that 745 districts have submitted plans to the New Jersey Department of Education. Of those, 251 have been completed, but 389 have been returned to the districts to make changes -- 105 are still being reviewed.
For how the districts plan to reopen, 456 want to use a hybrid model of in-person and remote learning, 59 plan to reopen for in-person learning, 180 want to be all-remote, and 11 plan to have a mixture of the different education models.
The COVID-19 outbreak has ensured that the start of the school year won’t look like it usually does across the state.
