What will school look like in the fall?

ST. LOUIS, MO (KMOX) - It's anyone's guess what learning will look like for students when classes resume this fall.  Greater St. Louis area Catholic schools are planning for multiple scenarios.

The Office of Catholic Education and Formation for the Archdiocese of St. Louis has created a task force to consider options and implications.  Senior Director, Dr. Todd Sweda, says government health and safety protocols will be implemented in a variety of ways.

"All of our schools are different," Sweda says. "So in our Archdiocese we have different size schools, they are located in different counties, they have different sizes and styles of facilities."

Sweda says the task force will be giving schools more guidance for planning in just a few weeks. 

"Hopefully all that planning won't be for naught, because as you know, things keep changing every week to two weeks," Sweda says. "Even though we have a formal timeline for our task force, we know we're going to be communicating right up until the beginning of school dealing with emerging realities of the world."

Sweda says remote learning will continue to be an option, depending on circumstances throughout the next school year.
