Boston Public Schools Suspend In-Person Learning For All Students

October 21, 2020 at 5:21 pm

BOSTON (CBS) – Boston Public Schools announced on Wednesday that it is suspending all in-person learning for students due to rising coronavirus numbers.

The decision is effective as of Thursday. All students will learn remotely until there are two full weeks of falling infection rates.

Only high needs students are currently learning in the classroom as of Wednesday. The rest of the students are already learning remotely.


“BPS remains committed to providing in-person learning opportunities to our students as soon as it is appropriate to do so, and will continue to prioritize our students with the highest needs for in-person learning,” said Boston Public Schools Superintendent Brenda Cassellius.

There are approximately 3,500 high needs students in Boston schools.
