Alternating school days, year-round classes and cutting out extracurricular sports…it could be a new look for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year across Missouri.
The Missouri School Boards Association, or MSBA, is expected to consider a number of possible recommendations for school districts to consider when the board meets on Monday of next week.
The 97-page document also includes a one-year exemption to the opening start date for the academic year, in-person and virtual instruction and recommends teaching health habits to all grade levels and teaching students on the signs of illness.
Official actions taken on any of the MSBA recommendations are being left to the individual school districts. The MSBA is a private, not-for-profit organization representing school district members across the state.
A full sampling of the recommendations is available on a number of websites including the MSBA website.
