The map below gives a broad indication of the kind of instruction offered by all or most public school districts in a particular county — whether via in-person or distance learning, or a mixture of the two — as of Oct. 30, 2020. It is based on information from county offices of education from Oct. 22-29, supplemented by EdSource research.
Mostly In-Person Instruction: In 21 counties, all or most districts are offering some form of in-person instruction, or are planning to offer it sometime in November, in hybrid or range of other formats.
Mostly Distance Learning: In 17 counties, all or most districts are offering instruction via distance learning at least through January 1, 2021.
Mixed: In 20 counties, some districts are offering in-person instruction, while others are still principally in distant learning mode.
Note: The map does not include private, parochial or charter schools, or special education or other small group classes for students with special needs that districts are offering through the state’s “small cohort” guidance. “In-person instruction” refers to counties where most or all districts offer some form of in-person instruction in regular classes, or plan to offer such instruction in November, often in hybrid formats, to some or all grades, and to those students who wish to participate.
