Senator Cwodzinski Statement on Safe Learning Plan for 2020-21 School Year

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 Steve Cwodzinski (DFL-Eden Prairie) released the following statement:


“As a teacher for over 30 years, going back to school and teaching in the classroom was something I looked forward to every fall. Because of the challenges of COVID-19, going back to school looks different this year as we take steps to ensure the safety of our students, teachers, and other staff during these challenging times. The plan introduced by Governor Walz today provides a framework for local decision makers to choose the education model that works best for them, by using data and input from those in the community. While each and every one of us wants to see our kids and teachers back in the classroom, we have a moral obligation to ensure that they are safe and protected from this virus. Today’s announcement provides the flexibility our communities need on this important issue.”
