EducationDive |

Common trends across reopening plans from prominent education, government and health organizations suggest doing so may be easier said than done.

Education Dive overlapped federal guidelines with draft state recovery plans and guidance released by institutes or organizations —​ including the American Federation of Teachers, the American Enterprise Institute, the World Health Organization and Learning Policy Institute —​ to identify common themes being considered and assess their feasibility based on input from district leaders and health officials.

Popular options for hybrid models discussed by district and state leaders include weekly or daily rotations of students, with an emphasis on those needing in-person instruction the most.
