Each area is different. This is an issue where local control works best.

The question has already been answered in Texas. The governor and attorney general said the decision would be left up to the individual school districts. The superintendent and staff will make a recommendation and each school board will decide when and how to reopen. Parents, however, will decide whether their children will attend. There are other options to public schools available.
