San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer discusses the cities reopening plan for schools and allowing parents to choose whether their kids return to campus or continue online learning.
“The school board here in San Diego voted last night to give parents that option – to open up schools, to have the kids start on August 31, but also with the option to continue distance learning, which we had of course, for the last several months,” Faulconer said. “I support that. I think that the plan that we’ve been working on, and again with our superintendent, with our local school board here in San Diego, we spent a lot of time on what does a safe reopening plan looks like, allow parents to have that choice. I think that that strikes the right balance.”
