RIVERTON, Utah — Teachers, administrators and school board members with the Jordan School District are already planning for the upcoming school year and are asking for input from parents and teachers.

On Monday morning, Jordan School District officials held a virtual meeting with the Utah State Board of Education to go over the options for beginning a new school year during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last week, more than 200 people responded to a survey officials sent to parents and teachers. The majority of people want the school year to begin with traditional, in class curriculum.

Another option is to have students attend school on alternating full days or half days.

School board members and teachers are also putting a plan in place in the event they are forced to go to a total online, distance learning curriculum.

Monday's meeting is expected to last for several hours. When it’s done, officials hope to have a better idea of which direction they’ll be moving as they do their homework to get ready for the upcoming school year.
