Boston Public Schools (BPS) is conducting meetings with students, families, staff, district partners, and community members to gather input to help develop a plan for remote learning and the reopening of school buildings for this upcoming school year. We value your input. More meetings are being scheduled so that you can voice your concerns and recommendations.  

The health, safety, and well-being of our students and staff remain our top priority. All decisions are made based on current guidelines from public health officials and what is best for our community.
