Fresno Unified mulls digital-only pathway for August back-to-school

California’s fourth-largest school district has opted against sending students back to the classroom when instruction resumes in August.

Fresno Unified Superintendent Bob Nelson announced Monday that the district is considering beginning the school year in a fully digital format.

The district is joining with Los Angeles Unified, San Diego Unified, and San Bernardino Unified also announced the same decision for their districts.


“First and foremost, I have been in active discussion with all of our Trustees today to discuss their overarching interest in keeping our students safe, while also ensuring that all of our students are actively learning,” said Nelson.
