SCOTTSDALE, AZ — The Scottsdale Unified School District will roll out its reopening plans during a special meeting Tuesday night.

Summaries of the plan already posted on their web site show the district's 23,000 students will be able to choose from three learning models. They can attend fully online, full-time in-person after August 17, or enroll in a hybrid of the two.

Safety measures for students and staff on campus will include staggered passing periods, physical distancing in classrooms and hallways, and masks will be required.

Board members will also discuss how to bridge the gap between its August 10 start date and the governor's executive order delaying in-person instruction until at least August 17.

The meeting starts at 5 p.m. and will be streamed on the SUSD YouTube Channel.

Other districts discussing back to school plans this week include Casa Grande Union High School, Washington Elementary and Glendale Elementary.
