JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — The Mississippi Department of Education is offering options for how schools can offer classes starting in the fall semester.
They include social distancing and other safety guidelines because of the coronavirus pandemic.
School districts may offer in-person classes with some modifications.
They could have hybrid schedules with some distance learning.
The hybrid could also mean having half the students in school on certain days while others learn from home.
A virtual schedule would be for online classes.
The state Health Department says Mississippi has had at least 19,300 cases of the coronavirus and 880 deaths from it.
