Many educational institutes this fall semester will begin with some form of hybrid instruction where the number of students in the building will be limited to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ensure social distancing practices. Students may also rotate between in-person and online learning.
Thursday July 23, the New Mexico Public Education Department announced the state has delayed the eligibility date for the return to in-person learning until September 8. This means New Mexico public school students will not attend classes in person through at least Labor Day. School districts and charter schools may continue to exercise local decision-making regarding the start date of school and online learning.
