Oregon students are being excluded from school due to the coronavirus — either for testing positive for COVID-19 or because of exposure to someone else who has been diagnosed. But despite last year's massive effort at remote learning, two of the state's largest school districts don't have plans for how to keep students learning when they have to quarantine away from class.
March 16, 2020, was the day the COVID-19 pandemic first closed Oregon schools, following an order from Gov. Kate Brown. Many students have spent a whole year learning from home. And for students with disabilities, that brings extra challenges. Families have to find new tools and build school environments without the services they’re used to.
