Late Thursday night, the Clark County School District school board approved the plan to reopen schools this August.
Under the plan, students will return to school two days a week and distance learn three days a week. There will also be an option to distance learn entirely.
Trustees voted to submit the plan in its current form to the Nevada Board of Education on the condition that they will have the opportunity to discuss changes before everything is finalized.
Superintendent Jesus Jara said the district needs to submit an overview plan to the state in order to move forward with specific adjustments.
The vote allows the district to start asking parents about whether their children will return to in-person learning and what technology needs they may have.
Jara said there are still a lot of factors that could influence whether students return in the fall, including the status of the coronavirus outbreak and what cuts to education the state enacts during the special session going on now in Carson City.
