Currently, only K-3 grades have in-person school (and only twice a week. Everyone else has virtual classes, which is to say, virtually no school at all. Plans are underway to get most grades back in the classrooms, but only for a couple of days each week.

Most public districts are virtually only. Private are open. So ridiculous and sad what public schools are doing to our kids. Open up already

Here in Fort Mill, SC right across the border from Charlotte, NC our public school is going 2 days per week in person. The local school board we elected who claim to be Republican when running for office refuse to govern . We have learned that their one employee , the superintendent , a Democrat and friend of a State senator do liberal that he recently left even his own Democrat Caucus to pretty much fight full time for the (liberal) teachers who don’t want to go back is calling the shots. Our school board can’t articulate what the methodology or goalposts are for getting back to school. Some of our women are calling. writing and having conversations with people in our delegation. It is a rough time and the kids are the ones that will bear the consequences.

The education department here in Oregon is directing teachers to radicalize our students. Please read the article at the following link for more detailed information:
Our group plans to address this topic at our March meeting. I suggest you investigate your local school system to determine if the administrators are planning anything similar.

My school district, as a well as all other surrounding districts and all private schools, have been full time in person since August, with a couple weeks off for some between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
The larger city (Peoria, Illinois) which we surround , has their failing school district students only in-school half-time (rotation schedule). They had only gotten thru middle schoolers in-person when they shut down for the 6 weeks T-giving- January) and had not even planned to start high schoolers in Person until January! They are failing the most vulnerable students!

Most private schools are FULL class days and doing great but the public schools are either all virtual or part-time virtual and part-time attend. A lot of the children aren't even bothering to "show-up" for the virtual and so are missing out. It is going to be a sad time for those families that cannot afford tutoring help and/or class attending.
My grandson & granddaughter are both doing "in school" classes and enjoying themselves.... So glad to be in school and learning.

I'd say it's not really good. Our kids are struggling to cope with the virtual ser-up of teaching.

It is important to recognize that the vast majority of states have a constitutional obligation to make education broadly available. Most schools are trying to follow this principle; in almost heroic fashion, teachers have learned entirely new ways of teaching and even created ways to get food to students safely.

Never the ideal setup that you want your kids to go through. It's much easier for kids to learn if they are in direct supervision of a teacher and we must admit that we can never replace teachers. Very hard!

Parents in our district have been fighting the democratic teachers union in Colorado to get our kids in school full time. As of today, we have public school kids going to school with a hybrid schedule. The public charter school and private schools are back full time. Besides the teachers union, our biggest hurdle to getting kids back is our health department. They keep using scare tactics to keep these kids from attending school. We need to hold our unelected officials accountable as well as the teachers union for the unnecessary mental hardship our children are going through.

Private schools are open full time and the public schools are still arguing about "if" and "when" and "how much" It is ridiculous. My grandson is doing so well in the church school he attends and all the kiddos are having such a good time. They ALL needed this to be able to feel like "normal" He has stopped having nightmares
