EdSource conducted interviews by phone and email with students, parents and administrators in a sampling of overseas and rural American schools to learn how they are reopening in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. In many cases, the precautions taken overseas mirror what education officials in California have said to expect next year: regular temperature checks, physical distancing, hybrid schedules and even new restrictions on eating lunch. But no matter how careful the plans, schools may have to close again, as happened in Beijing this month following a new outbreak of the coronavirus.
