Virginia Democrats make push on return to in-person school

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia House Democrats have unveiled legislation that would require school districts to offer at least some access to in-person learning by the 2021-2022 school year.

The bill says districts must provide either fully in-person instruction or a combination of in-person and virtual instruction to each student.

It would also offer a fully virtual option for families who want one.

The measure has the support of House leadership and Gov. Ralph Northam.

Virginia currently has a patchwork approach to schooling, with some public and private schools offering in-person learning but others offering only virtual school.
