On Tuesday, Gavin Newsom, Gov. of California, took new anxiety session for students, parents, as well as teachers, because he said that California’s school system is probably going to reopen late July.
Gov. Newsom brought the possible alteration to restart the plan that would permit manufacturers and retailers to reopen their work within a few weeks. Moreover, kid care and summer schools with parks, trails, and many other outdoor places are expected to reopen.
Newsom said that no conclusions were made about an early start of schools. He added that learning loss is very generous. Due to the pandemic Coronavirus, almost the whole education system, including colleges, and schools are shut down under the statewide stay-at-home orders. Besides this, students and students are facing real problems and struggling to choose home learning education.

California state does not have the potential to order to the district to reopen, and alters would be necessary to be worked out between the teacher’s union and local districts. Announcement of today seemed to grip California’s leading school’s administration, surprisingly, who told in an announcement that we all listened to the idea to reopen the schools as early as July.
Tony Thurmond, Superintendent of Public Instruction, told that some basic questions are still waiting for their answers. The very first question is that, can this be done in such a way that protects the safety and health of our teachers, students, and school staff?
Meanwhile, educators of California grapple with the reopening of more than one thousand schools. And the most important thing, these school districts probably face budget problems because tax income is not enough due to business closures and job losses.
On Tuesday, Linda Darling Hammond, who is the State Board of Education, told lawmakers that the school system requires around a hundred million dollars to buy 400,000 computers and around 290,000 internet hotspots to support ‘close the divide and sustain access for students.’ She added that maximum California’s 6.2 million students have access to the technology.
There are numerous questions about the structure of school and the timeline to reopen the schools. Furthermore, decisions would be altered district by district, and even many districts already reopen the schools in August.
Officials told that whatever timeline we adopt but schools are going to look completely different.
Among various scenarios, Gov. Newsom tried to describe start time and put limits on the number of students at one time in the school. He also mentioned changes in lunch, recess, and other gatherings.
