Alameda County schools will not reopen this year; students to attend virtual classrooms

The academic school year in Alameda County will continue at home, not in the physical classroom.

Alameda County beatAlameda County Superintendent Karen Monroe said Tuesday that public schools will not reopen for the remainder of the current school year due to the covid-19 pandemic.

“We must ensure that we continue to do all we can to support our most vulnerable students, who may not have the same access to remote learning and healthcare services while maintaining the overall safety of our communities and flattening the curve,” Monroe said.

Public school students in Contra Costa, Marin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and San Francisco County, will also close their school campuses indefinitely. The move affects about 1 million students in the Bay Area.

Prior to Tuesday’s announcement, Alameda County school officials, last week extended a previous suspension of classroom instruction to May 4. However, Monroe suggested at the time that the remainder of the school year was in doubt.

  1. Don’t you think it would make sense for the state superintendent of education to come out with some guidelines for state wide instruction that all of the high schools and middle schools and elementary schools can follow. If they are all on the same path then they should all have an equal education to get them through this year. I am worried that if you don’t have a strong school district you’re going to really miss out this year. Just my thoughts, Pauline
