Fall 2020 reopening plans: How each Utah school district is responding to the coronavirus pandemic

By KSL.com Staff | Updated - Aug. 11, 2020 at 11:09 p.m. | Posted - Jul. 15, 2020 at 7:52 p.m.



From the governor to local school districts to parents, teachers and students, many decisions must be made this fall as Utahns prepare to return to school during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Utah Gov. Gary Herbert enacted a soft closure of state schools in the spring and students finished the year online. But with more time to prepare for the fall, schools and universities are trying to walk a line between providing in-person instruction and keeping students and teachers safe even as COVID-19 cases continue to be reported.

All schools must have a plan in place for COVID-19 contingencies by Aug. 1.
