School Districts Will Determine Fall Instruction, Wayzata To Announce Initial Plan Around Aug. 5

Gov. Tim Walz announced Thursday that individual Minnesota public school districts will determine their own instruction plans for the upcoming school year as a part of the Safe Learning Plan.

COVID-19 cases in each school district will impact how school districts determine the plan for fall.

The State of Minnesota recommends the following learning models according to the number of COVID-19 cases.

These are recommendations that are given to the individual school districts to help determine what is best for their students and staff.




There are basically three options: 1.) Students return to class full time, 2.) Students return to class part time and do distance learning part time, 3.) Students do only distance learning.


According to a recent survey of families done by the Wayzata school district, more than half of parents interviewed were either very comfortable or comfortable with in-person instruction.

Meanwhile, more than half of school district staff stated they were very comfortable or comfortable in returning to their school/work location this fall according to a school district survey.


According to a statement released by Wayzata Public Schools on Tuesday, the school district will share an initial school reopening plan around August 5.

“The best scenario is what is in the best interest of our students, families and staff,” said Wayzata School District Superintendent Chace Anderson in a recent interview with Wayzata.com. “The pandemic is an ever-changing situation and what may be a preference today can change tomorrow. We are learning right now from other schools across the country that are opening and others that will remain closed. We will be prepared for all of the scenarios in the event one or all of them need to be implemented.”
