MA Requires In-Person Learning in High Schools by May 17

 by TWIW StaffApril 27, 2021

Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education Jeffrey Riley announced on Tuesday, April 27, that all school districts in Massachusetts must provide high school students with full-time, in-person learning by May 17.

The Board of Elementary and Secondary Education granted Riley the authority to end remote and hybrid learning as applicable to Student Learning Time regulations.

Any district that misses structured learning time must make that time up, unless it receives a waiver from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education [DESE]

Parents and guardians may continue to choose remote learning for their children for the rest of this school year.

There are 146 school districts already fully in-person in grades K-12. By May 17, 198 school districts plan full, in-person learning in grades K-12.

Those 198 school districts represent around two-thirds of all high schools in the Commonwealth.
