Colorado school districts are making their fall plans amidst an increasingly uncertain public health situation. 

The state’s two largest districts, Denver and Jeffco, have already announced they’ll start the school year remotely as cases of the coronavirus continue to increase. Other districts have delayed their start dates to do more planning and training. 

Parents, teachers, and students, meanwhile, are weighing their own options: return to the classroom or stay online.

New guidance from the Colorado Department of Education clears the way for most school districts to have regular class sizes for elementary students, but many decisions are left up to school districts. From conducting health screenings to closing the digital divide, there are still a lot of logistics to work out. 

Chalkbeat wants to hear from parents, students, and school staff. Tell us your feedback, concerns, and lingering questions below.
