Reopening plan for Chicago schools calls for a mix of in-person and online instruction

July 17, 2020
Most students in the nation's third-largest district would be in classrooms two days a week.

Having high school juniors and seniors on a full-time online schedule will keep another 50,000 people out of buildings to enable easier social distancing.

The city says it has bought 1.2 million reusable cloth face masks for students and staff members and 40,000 containers of disinfectant wipes. The district is also pledging to put 42,000 hand sanitizer dispensers in classrooms and high traffic areas, and to hand out 22,000 touchless thermometers for health screenings.
