CHANDLER, AZ — With just six weeks to go before the next school year begins the Chandler Unified School District is giving a closer look at how it plans to safely reopen schools.

The governing board is discussing the following four options and the preventive measures each entail:

-Opening schools with precautions, like increased cleaning
-Opening schools with schedule modifications to help distance students
-Continue school closures
-Plan for emergency or intermittent closures.

The district's survey results show more than half of parents say they are ready to send their kids back to school full-time and in-person come July 22.

No votes are scheduled for Wednesday night, but the district says it hopes to finalize plans in time for the June 24 meeting.
