Vail School District includes more than 20 campuses and over 12,000 students. Providing them with a quality education while protecting them from the pandemic presents an ongoing challenge. We learned how the district is handling both from Superintendent John Carruth.
“We’re starting quite smoothly, actually. We put a huge amount of time and effort into developing what remote learning will look like and making sure we’re doing that in a much more robust way than when we ended fourth quarter,” Carruth said.
Carruth said when COVID-related metrics fall to safe levels in Pima County and the district can begin to bring students back, it will continue to offer remote options for families concerned about the virus.
“We won’t be bringing kids back in a large way until public health metrics say it’s reasonably safe to do so,” Carruth said.
