DESE Color Coded School Reopening Expectations

Districts and schools in communities designated gray, green, or yellow are expected to have students learning fully in-person, if feasible. A hybrid model should be used only if there is no other way to meet health and safety requirements. Parents and caregivers will continue to have the option to choose a district’s remote learning program for their children.

Schools in red communities should implement hybrid models, while maximizing in-person learning time for high-needs students.
