Wow. $1.2M for still "virtual" schooling. I suspect teachers will be sequestered in the lounge. If I were a parent, I'd probably be looking into charter, voucher, pods, or home schooling. Just about anything is going to be better than what taxes are already paying into the public school system.

This plan sounds so privileged. So they are hiring subs to stay in the class with kids while teachers teach from home? That doesn't make it any safer; it just pushes the risk to someone else. Why not do what Palo Alto is doing and just have the teachers actually teach from those rooms instead of a sub, even if it is remotely to those not in attendance? Is the classroom duty being pushed to subs b/c they don't have a union? That seems like a waste of money as now we are paying a teacher and an on-site supervisor.

It's a good idea to reopen schools, as while the remote study students meet a lot of problems. Now we get too many home assignments, and it's hard to cope up with them. Recently I tried to order a paper from HandmadeWriting, but when I read their review Web Link I understood that the service is not reliable, the customers` feedback is not the best, so I need to look for another company for my home assignments.
