ANNAPOLIS, MD (AP) – Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says the state’s health metrics regarding the coronavirus have improved enough for all schools to have some in-person learning this fall. Hogan made the announcement with a leading state health official and the state superintendent of schools. So far, 16 of Maryland’s 24 jurisdictions plan to have some in-person school instruction for K-12 this fall. However, Hogan says it “doesn’t make any sense” that eight jurisdictions don’t have any plans at all yet for in-person instruction. State Superintendent of Schools Karen Salmon is encouraging all school systems to re-evaluate modes of instruction by the end of the first quarter.
