SAN ANTONIO — As school districts reopen for in-person learning for some students and continue virtual learning for others, KENS 5 is helping parents keep up with resources offered by their districts.
Most districts were expected to return in person in early September, while also offering the option of virtual learning, though some opened their doors to in-person learning in mid-to-late August.
San Antonio Metro Health is currently in the "school risk level" of the Yellow Zone based on health indicators, meaning some students are in the classroom up to 25 percent. The students were prioritized based on special needs factors, at-risk factors and students who lack access to resources.
Public school districts are required to report positive COVID-19 cases on school campuses to the state. This data will be updated weekly on Wednesdays and you can find that database here. Some districts are also publishing case information directly on their district websites.
