After a recent COVID-19 spike, Chicago officers dismissed a prior learning activities plan that intended to combine in-person and distant schooling modalities. 

U.S. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Wednesday announced the school year would begin in September under a remote instruction program.

“Our decision to reopen Chicago Public Schools (CPS) remotely this fall is based in our evolving public health situation, and in the feedback that we notably received from parents and faculty,” Lightfoot briefed.

After a recent COVID-19 spike, Chicago officers dismissed a prior learning activities plan that intended to combine in-person and distant schooling modalities. 

Before the pandemic, CPS had 30 students per classroom on average, and 300 000 pupils overall. According to the preceding strategy, they would return to schools twice a week in July.

According to a survey, over 40% of elementary schooling infants' parents, and 38% of the parents of high school attendants were reticent to send their children back to classrooms.

The Chicago Teachers Union suggested the city’s officers improve online infrastructure to resume schooling.

“To start, this school year would certainly look different from anything before, but our commitment to give our students the most engaging and nurturing learning environment has not wavered and will not,” Lightfoot added.
