UTICA, N.Y. – At its next Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, Utica City School District will discuss the possibility of reopening some schools in early March.
According to the agenda, an amended reopening plan will be presented, as well as an update on preparing transportation services with Birnie Bus.
Superintendent Bruce Karam says they're only discussing elementary school students returning to some form of in-person learning for now. He said the tentative date to reopen is March 8.
Utica CSD has been fully remote since the start of the pandemic, and put off returning to school this year while coordinating bus services to ensure safe and reliable transportation for students.
The district, like many others, also faced staffing concerns because of quarantine and testing challenges with COVID testing requirements.
