APACHE JUNCTION, AZ — By the end of this week thousands more students, and their families, will have a better idea of what "back to school" could look like. Apache Junction Unified is one of several districts discussing reopening plans on Tuesday, June 23.

The 3,600 students there can choose from an in-person model, fully online or hybrid option.

As of now, students and staff will wear masks and have up to four temperature checks per day.

The board meeting starts at 6:00 p.m. with a final vote expected July 7.
