Local Superintendent comments on Governor Tim Walz’s recent announcement concerning reopening of Minnesota schools this fall

Governor Tim Walz says Minnesota school districts would work with state officials to evaluate local spread of COVID and preparedness, before deciding whether students are back in the classroom this fall, or distance learning continues, or a combination of the two. And Walz says the state will also work with school districts to determine if they need to “dial between” the various learning methods, depending on the progression of COVID in their particular community.  KAUS News spoke with Paul Besel, Superintendent of the Grand Meadow School District who gave his initial response to the Governor’s announcement…

Besel went on to state that one aspect of the announcement that concerns him is when will the district be able to determine what model they will be implementing for the start of the school year…

Besel went on to talk about where things go from here in the district concerning the situation…
