The deadline to decide how Capital Region school districts will hold classes in the fall is Friday.

School administrators have three choices. They can have the students come back to in-person classes, continue with remote learning, or a combination of the two.


Under state guidelines, a school district must be in Phase 4 in order to open.

The district must have a daily infection rate of 5% or lower over a 14-day average.  

Schools will close if a region's infection rate rises over 9% after August 1.
