Schools that open for in-person instruction will have to maintain strict COVID-19 protocols

The Murphy administration on Wednesday released the latest list of more than 50 districts and schools that have been approved by the state Department of Education for full reopening in the fall, with all in-person instruction.

The state has approved 350 reopening plans in all, the bulk of them a hybrid mix of in-person and remote instruction. But many of those are changing as more schools move to all-remote reopenings, at least to start. The state has said more than 130 have made such applications, including some that had already been approved for hybrid instruction. Those all-remote plans are still under review, officials said Thursday, although some have started to open.

The schools opening with all in-person instruction, five days a week with the requisite social distancing and other safety requirements, appear pretty set — at least for now. They include district, charter and private special-education schools that serve public school students.
