ST. PAUL, MN – Governor Walz announced the Safe Learning Plan for Minnesota schools Thursday, providing guidance for schools going back to school using one of three models: in-person, distance learning, or a hybrid model. In response, Senator Jim Carlson (DFL-Eagan), who released the following statement:

“Today’s announcement by the Governor gives local leaders the flexibility they need in deciding the best approach for how their communities go back to school in the fall. While each of us knows that being in the classroom is the best way to educate our kids, we also know that parents, families, teachers, and staff are concerned about the danger of COVID-19. Above all else, we must put the safety and wellbeing of people first and this data-driven approach provides necessary flexibility that our communities need to keep people safe while providing an education that our students need.”
