Friday meeting may determine what the fall 2020 school year looks like for Nashville students
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- Nashville Mayor John Cooper meets Friday with Metro Schools Director Dr. Adrienne Battle to discuss the fate of the coming school year.
Dr. Battle recently announced a school reopening plan that lets parents choose one of two options: have their children learn remotely from home, or return to in-person classes beginning August 4.
But a recent surge in new COVID-19 infections has forced the mayor to roll back his economic recovery plan and once again shutter some businesses.
Dr. Battle says that means schools will now have to prepare for the possibility that in-person classes will not be possible.
