Leading up to the start of school, three Wylie ISD staff members working at various schools tested positive for COVID-19, but the district said there is no current threat to anyone at school.

    Teachers have it tough, and getting this school year going is turning out to be even more work than usual thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. To make it easier, KFC is donating 1 million pieces of chicken for its restaurants to share with teachers through its “back-to-school buckets” program, the Louisville-based fried chicken chain announced Thursday. Local KFC franchisees will provide educators in their communities with chicken by catering training meetings, delivering buckets to teachers preparing a virtual curriculum or staff working to keep schools clean, according to the company. Andrea Zahumensky, CMO of KFC U.S., said she’s a working mother with three young children so she has “more respect and appreciation than ever for the time, energy and dedication...
    (CNN)The first rule of politics has long been to never, ever compare anything to Nazi Germany. The murder of 6 million Jews defies comparison. The second rule of politics -- or maybe just an addendum to the first rule -- should be: Never compare anything to the mission that led to the death of Osama bin Laden.Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (yes, him again) seemed to have missed that class in politician school.Here's DeSantis speaking at an event of a school reopening on Wednesday night in Tallahassee:"Martin County Superintendent Laurie Gaylord told me she viewed re-opening her schools as a mission akin to a Navy SEAL operation. Just as the SEALs surmounted obstacles to bring Osama bin Laden to justice, so...
    Osama Bin Laden, the mastermind of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, became a trending topic on Twitter for a while on Thursday afternoon, after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis compared the U.S. mission that killed him to reopening schools. The governor made the remarks during a press conference on reopening schools Wednesday night. Florida, like multiple other states, is wrestling with how, or even if, to put children back into school while the coronavirus pandemic rages. As The Daily Beast reported, DeSantis has been bullish on putting the children back into their school buildings, and had reportedly even pressured officials in counties with spiking coronavirus infection rates to do in-person learning rather than distance instruction. During his presser, a transcript...
    From the Aug. 13 edition of Fox News' "America's Newsroom": TRACE GALLAGHER, Fox News: It seems to me, and I want to put these Gallup polls up on the screen, it seems to me and to a lot of Americans that this push to get in-person learning is losing a little bit of steam. You see there from May 25 to June 8, 56% of the population said they wanted in-person, full-time school, and you move forward to July and now it's down to 36%.   So, the whole push seems to be losing steam. What does the administration think about that?   BETSY DeVOS: Well, we know that it's a coordinated effort and a campaign to continue to sow...

    Edinburgh — Scottish children went back to school for the first time in five months on Tuesday as leaders across Britain try to kickstart a return to education despite a resurgence in the number of coronavirus cases. Scotland's devolved government has ordered pupils in different parts of the country to return gradually through this week, with all classes set to have resumed fully by next Tuesday. In England, where plans to restart schooling early, in June, had to be abandoned following opposition from teaching unions and some parents, the government is adamant that children will return in early September, as usual. A pupil uses a sanitizing unit as students return to Holyrood Secondary School in Glasgow for the first time following...

    SAN ANTONIO – Amid increased health risks, families in which students are under their grandparents' care face a difficult decision as the new school year begins -- sending them back to school and risk possible COVID-19 infection or keeping them at home to learn virtually.

Bristol, executive director of the nonprofit Texas Grandparents Raising Grandchildren, has been taking care of her five grandchildren for nine years.

    After months of being the Bay Area’s most cautious county on reopening, Santa Clara County is leading the pack as one of the first to offer waivers to allow elementary schools to bring students back to the classroom. The county’s public health department unveiled its process late last week, giving K-6 schools a road map welcoming back students after Gov. Gavin Newsom mandated schools must get special permission to teach in-person in counties on the state’s coronavirus watchlist. Alameda, Contra Costa and San Francisco counties have all said they won’t offer waivers until transmission of the COVID-19 virus quiets down. Marin and Sonoma counties also issued their guidelines late last week, and San Mateo County is still developing its application...

    New York City’s public schools will not be ready to reopen for in-person learning by the first day of school on Sept. 10, a union representing principals and administrators told Mayor Bill de Blasio in a letter on Wednesday. The letter, sent from Mark F. Cannizzaro, president of the Council of School Supervisors and Administrators, urged the mayor and schools Chancellor Richard Carranza to begin the school year fully remote and delay in-person instruction until the end of September to allow for more time to train teachers on new safety measures, hire more school nurses and procure enough personal protection equipment (PPE).  “The slow rollout of guidance has forced us to once again address an unfortunate truth: Schools will not...

    DENVER (CBS4) – Back to school now means students will hop on zoom at many schools, including Compass Academy in Denver. That setup is a challenge for Compass students who are used to a holistic education that includes mental health support from teachers. Approximately 94% of Compass students are on free or reduced lunch and 92% of students are Latino. A new report says Latino families are more vulnerable to COVID-19 because many parents are essential workers who cannot work from home, households might have multiple generations living under one roof and staying socially distant is not accessible. On Wednesday Compass Academy is asking for your help. Teachers and students are holding a “Back to School Drive” from 8 a.m....

    On Tuesday morning, school board members in Hendry County, Florida, logged onto their computers for a virtual “emergency” session about the upcoming school year. For some teachers watching, the meeting amounted to a disturbing surprise.  The week prior, the county school board had approved a plan that would require students learn virtually until the county’s coronavirus case positivity rate dropped below 10 percent for at least 10 consecutive days. Hendry County, an area 65 miles east of Fort Myers with a population of 42,000, currently has one of the highest infection rates (4.2 percent) in all of southwestern Florida. Multiple teachers in the county told The Daily Beast they’d viewed the decision to hold off on sending kids back to...

Families can still choose to opt their child out in favor of e-learning, but many of them are ready to get back into a school routine. With deep restrictions, some reservations and thousands of pounds of cleaning products on hand, the district says they are ready after the summer break kids actually want to come to an end. “I just want to go back and see my friends,” said Caitlin Bochenek. It’s that nudge that seems to have some Munster parents OK with it. “Routing is huge, and after last spring they definitely need it,” said parent Abbey Burke.

    By Scott Muska It’s that time of year again: Back-to-school season.  As summer comes to an end and fall approaches, it’s time for all students — from pre-K to post-grad —  to stock up on what they need to perform at their academic best, whether they’ll be spending the year in a brick-and-mortar school, learning and working remotely, or a combination of the two. Many brands get in on the action with great deals you’d be hard-pressed to find the rest of the year. And fun fact: Not all of the deals require you to prove you’re enrolled in an educational program, so everyone can still pick up some great products at a discounted price. Here are just a few...

    Less than 24 hours before teachers were set to teach their first lessons of the new school year, the San Jose Unified School District has decided to grant teachers the choice to work from home. “We got a commitment from the union that those teaching from home would provide the same quality of instruction as those teaching from the classroom,” Jacqueline Murphy, director of human resources, said in an interview Tuesday. “So, we felt comfortable expanding the opportunity for all teachers to work from home.” The district’s last-minute reversal comes just two weeks after the district and San Jose Teachers Association reached an agreement requiring that the majority of teachers return to campus to teach their virtual lessons from empty...
    Mobile, medical and testing: three simple words. It’s when you put the three of them together that all the trouble begins. You have to meet up with the test subject. You have to extract the specimen. You have to send the specimen to the lab. You have to trust the lab’s results. (This particular step is now officially known as “the Mike DeWine,” in honor of the Republican governor of Ohio who got a false positive on his coronavirus test last week just as he was heading into the White House.) You have to report the results to the patient and anyone else with a right to see them. You might or might not have to deal with an insurance...
    One Union County school district will begin the academic year with online learning only, going against the directions from Gov. Phil Murphy for in-person instruction. The Elizabeth School Board on Monday night voted to begin next month with remote classes after nearly 375 teachers refused to come back into the classroom over COVID-19 fears.  Buildings will remain closed due to the teacher shortage, the district said, noting in-person classes are "mathematically impossible." The plan must be approved by the New Jersey Department of Education.
    Only freshmen, new transfers and international students will live on campus and take in-person classes when the new school year starts next month, Macalester College announced Monday.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Parents of K-12 students can claim tax benefits if they save receipts for the school supplies they bought for the school year. There are two tax benefits which can help Minnesota families pay expenses related to their child’s education: the refundable K-12 Education Credit and the K-12 Education Subtraction. While income limits apply to the education credit, they do not apply to the education subtraction. To qualify, the purchases must be for educational services or required materials, and the child must be attending kindergarten through 12th grade at a public, private, or home school. Most expenses for educational instruction or materials qualify, including paper, pens, notebooks, textbooks, computer hardware, software, and after-school tutoring. “This year, distance learning may have...

    The number of children being diagnosed with coronavirus soared by 90 per cent in four weeks while the number in hospital rose 70 per cent, new figures show.

But by August 8 those figures had risen to 380,174 cases and 3,276 in hospital, driven by a wave of infections that occurred as states tried to reopen. The figures will raise doubts over plans to reopen schools across the US in the fall, after Donald Trump claimed children were 'almost immune' to the virus.

    SAN JOSE (KPIX) — School starts Wednesday for the San Jose Unified School District when hundreds of teachers will be ordered back to their classrooms but KPIX is learning that some teachers will stand their ground and teach from home. The district told teachers they could apply to teach from home if they had a valid reason, such as a medical issue. District leaders also said they would accommodate teachers who needed child care. However, high school teacher Kelly Walker said that has not been the case. Walker applied to stay at home because she was scrambling to find daycare for her 3-month-old son after district leaders decided teachers would be required to report to their classrooms. She found out...
              One group’s mission to give all Tennessee voters the power to recall school board members has withered away because of a chancery court judge in Madison County. As The Tennessee Star reported last month, members of the Tennessee General Assembly proposed a law that would have given voters statewide the power to recall school board members. But legislators later watered down the bill so that it would apply only to Madison County, and they later passed it into law. A group of Williamson County parents recently formed Recall Williamson. They said they wanted state legislators to amend the law to give additional counties the right to recall school board officials. State Rep. Glen...

    (CHINO HILLS) — For a dozen school districts in the Inland Empire, Monday marked the first day of school but things looked very different on campus as students headed back to class from home.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Nothing is ordinary about the upcoming school year, including back-to-school shopping. In the case of Hazel Robinson, a mother with two children in the Highlands School District, checking items off her shopping list is more challenging this year. “We don’t know what things they may need. And we’d rather them be prepared,” said Robinson. Based on past spending, she estimates she’ll spend several hundred dollars to get both of her children the things they need to start the school year. This year, in addition to traditional school supplies, she needs electronics to support her kids’ online learning. And as school districts bounce back and forth between back-to-school models, Robinson fears she’s wasting her money....
    WEST SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Several school districts in Northern California have had to push back their start dates for distance learning while parents in districts that have started are already frustrated. Laura Ingram showed CBS13 her classroom setup. She will be teaching her kindergarten class from her dining room. Planning hasn’t been easy and her district, Washington Unified in West Sacramento, is one of the districts that pushed back the start date. “[Starting sooner] would have been an absolute mess. We wouldn’t have been prepared for it,” said Ingram. “I don’t think that we’re behind anybody else, I will say, It isn’t about being ready and organized. We are ready,” said WUSD Superintendent Linda Luna. Luna said once Yolo County...
    TEXAS – Back to school for the 2020-2021 cycle will be very different due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That is why Telemundo 39 prepared a special program for you with valuable information that will help you so that your children have a successful return to school. You can see the program live in the video above the note and once it is finished you can return to this page, to see it again, in case you missed any details.
    Throw out your back-to-school shopping list from last year: You won’t need it. Whether your kids are going back to in-person classes, staying home full-time or doing some kind of hybrid, they won’t be able to get through the new school year with just their usual supply of pencils and paper. Remote learning and staying safe from COVID-19 will require a different kind of back-to-school shopping. Although parents are shelling out more for work-from-home supplies such as laptops and pricey technology, they’re pulling back the purse strings on new clothes, reports the AP. Ditch the new sweaters and shoes for sweatpants, the flashy backpacks for standing desks and headphones. Overwhelmed with where to start? The Post has you covered. Here...

    Three-fourths of all public school students in New York City, roughly 700,000 children, are expected to return to classrooms come September, Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Monday.  “We’re the only major school district in America — the only major urban school district planning for in-person classes this fall,” he said at a daily briefing, citing the city’s low viral spread as reasoning for the decision.  Parents had to decide by Friday if they planned to send their children back to school or keep them in 100% remote learning. So far, 26% of the district, or more than a quarter-of-million students, have opted to learn from home. The rest will start a so-called “blended learning” model, in which they will...

OAKLAND — For some students, school began this year with no new backpacks, lunchboxes or even the typical back-to-school shopping for clothes. Instead, Oakland Unified students, like many across the state, sat in front of computers Monday for the first day of their academic year. The first day back was supposed to be just about an hour of learning as the teachers union, Oakland Education Association, and school district continue negotiations on what distance-learning will look like this school year during the pandemic. But for some students on Monday, they received even less than an hour of online instruction on their first day back. Camila Lopez, 10, is...

Following the unrest stemming from the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, protesters have demanded Chicago Public Schools cut ties with the Chicago Police Department — as has happened in Minneapolis — and remove officers from schools as part of a larger movement against police violence. City and district leaders have resisted taking widespread action, instead urging local school councils to make their own decisions. Most schools already have opted to retain school police...

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) is looking at transmission among nearly 2,000 households across the US.  Researchers hope to determine the percentage of children who become infected, how many adults subsequently contract the virus, and if infection differs between children who have asthma or other allergic conditions and children who do not It comes as several studies and anecdotal reports have been published over the last month, which have found that children of all ages have become infected, and then pass the disease on to their family members.  The National...

    This article is reprinted by permission from NerdWallet. Back-to-school shopping is an expensive chore in a normal year; this year is anything but normal. But with August upon us, stores are putting out back-to-school displays in anticipation of children needing to learn, whether in the classroom or at home. Two-fifths (40%) of parents with children in K-12 or college anticipate their children will be attending classes in a hybrid environment (both in-person and remote) in the fall of 2020, according to a new NerdWallet survey conducted online July 16-20 by The Harris Poll among over 600 parents. Planning for multiple scenarios could result in the need for increased back-to-school spending, but many may not have the extra money this year....
    LONDON (Reuters) - It is a national priority for children to return to school after months away from the classroom due to the coronavirus pandemic, a junior British health minister said on Monday.

    OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Just hours to go before the new school year launches for Oakland students, the teachers’ union and district officials still haven’t finalized a deal on what distance learning will look like this fall. As of Sunday night, negotiations lasting more than 4 weeks were still ongoing with teachers saying they need more help and flexibility with live online instruction. The major points of contention include the number of required teaching hours and the need for smaller group settings online. When Zoom school uploads Monday morning, more than 50,000 students and teachers in Oakland will venture into what school officials say is an ‘improved’ digital classroom setting, but in reality, still very far from...
            by Bethany Blankley  As states and school districts continue to change their back-to-school policies due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the national debate rages over in-person or virtual learning for instruction, some parents have taken their children’s education into their own hands. A new form of quasi-homeschooling, called micro-schooling, is emerging. In this not-so-new format, neighboring families have decided to educate their children in a modern version of the 19th century era one-room schoolhouse. But there’s a difference, Matt Candler, founder of 4.0 Schools, notes. “What makes a modern micro-school different from a 19th century, one-room schoolhouse is that old school schools only had a few ways to teach — certainly no software, no tutors, and probably...

    To the concerned parents, guardians and students of Scioto County, We are living in unprecedented times. In the past we would, really without thinking of any ill effects, send our children to in person school. This year is different. With the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping across our nation and area, each parent, guardian, student and staff member needs to consider their personal risk of getting COVID-19. Currently, there is a risk of severe illness for all, but the severity of that risk increases with age and other illness. Hospitalizations and death from COVID-19 increase with age. If you are over the age of 65, and are concerned about your exposure from a child bringing home this disease, please consider remote learning....

    Lisa Selin Davis August 8, 2020 3:00PM (UTC) Much of the talk about going back to school focuses, understandably and necessarily, on safety and equity. But a new study from the University of Cambridge suggests we keep something else in mind as school resumes, in one form or another: gender norms. That is, we should avoid them, explode them and encourage kids to reject them. Why? Because kids who defy gender stereotypes did better. Boys who resisted pressures to be traditionally masculine got better grades. Girls who were marked as tomboys by researchers did better in math, while those who were traditionally feminine risked falling behind. : This was no surprise to me. After two years researching and writing...
