K-12 schools across the state prepare to reopen amid coronavirus

Many K-12 school systems in Missouri will resume in-person instruction in August, and it’s raising questions over safety measures.

Some schools in the Kansas City area have year-round schedules and will welcome students back starting next month, The Kansas City Star reports.

Teachers will be required to wear masks during the day, but they will be optional for students.

Schools will limit the number of kids on a playground, and food will be delivered directly to classrooms, instead of a cafeteria.

Some schools are also taking the opportunity to convert to a competency-based approach. Under this approach, students work at their own pace and move up levels when they master a set of skills.
