Glendale Schools Will Reopen With Online-Only Classes This Fall
Glendale Unified this week joined a growing list of school districts choosing to start the new school year with online-only learning. Glendale's school year starts Aug. 19.
In the Los Angeles area, L.A. Unified, Pasadena, and Long Beach Unified have also opted for distance learning.
While classes will happen online and at home, some Glendale campuses will be open to some elementary school-age students for child care.
Glendale Superintendent Vivian Ekchian told KPCC's daily public affairs show AirTalk that students allowed on campus will be in supervised groups of no more than 10 children, in rooms where they can safely distance themselves:
"We are going to follow the public health and CDC guidelines — every single bullet will be checked off, because we want to make sure that our students are safe."
The district will also provide free laptops and wireless internet hotspots to any student that need them.
