TUCSON (KVOA) - The Tucson Unified School District recently released their plan for a virtual curriculum with an option to work from the school or from home.
Students will be allowed to return to school this fall in Tucson. However, all classes will be done online. Students are permitted to work from the schools or from home.
"Our parents, through economic need, need to have their kids back at school," said Dr. Gabriel Trujillo, TUSD superintendent. "Our teachers are very very scared they're very nervous."
The school system understands the importance of the parent's jobs, which is why there is an option in place.
"Parents are in full control," Trujillo said. "Our on-campus option is specifically in support of parents that have to work"
The parents, teachers and superintendent all understand the importance of safety. TUSD said the three also understand that these kids need to be back at school.
Teachers will be working for the virtual classes and not teaching kids directly in the classroom.
"No matter where you're at, you're going to be on a computer," Trujillo said. "Our team will be revisiting the possibility of opening up back to normal school after fall break."
This format will last through the first nine weeks of school. Then there will be an assessment from the parties involved to extend or change the format.
