On July 30, Governor Walz provided school districts with guidance on return-to-school plans. The Safe Learning Plan prioritizes health and safety for school communities and the return of as many students as possible to our schools. Each school district is required to use local COVID-19 case rates to inform their learning models: in-person, hybrid, and distance learning. Based on the changing health needs of the local community, the district is prepared to implement any of these learning models throughout the school year and may need to shift between models as health conditions change.
As COVID-19 case rates fluctuate, local health data may require a transition to either a more or less restrictive learning model. Each week, the State releases local county health data.
