REDDING, Calif. – As Gov. Gavin Newsom's anticipated early start to the school year draws closer, districts in the area are working on plans for just how and when to reopen campuses.
The Enterprise School District in Shasta County expects students to head back to the classroom in August.
Action News Now reached out to the school district and learned there are "no plans to start the school year early in July." The district is also looking at how to tackle safety measures next year.
The school district is reconsidering its cleaning methods, social distancing in the classroom, and how to address the learning gap.
"We know many of them are anxious to get their kids back to school," said Enterprise School District Assistant Superintendent, Heather Armelino. "Our ultimate hope is that things are going to be back as normal as possible."
"A lot of kids miss their schoolmates and I think it would just bring the community back together," Eighth-grader in Cottonwood, Adan Sanchez said.
To help kids stay on top of their learning during the summer, the Enterprise School District also plans to let families hang onto the Chromebooks that were distributed.
The district had to switch its enrollment process online, which started this week. The school district told Action News Now, it's still unknown if enrollment is affected by the coronavirus.
There are nine schools within the Enterprise School District.
