Boston Public Schools forgo plans for a virtual school this fall

By: | June 21, 2021

Boston Public Schools will not be offering an option for a “virtual school” to students this fall, according to Superintendent Brenda Cassellius.

The district was one of 13 in Massachusetts that indicated to state officials it was exploring the possibility of opening a completely online school in addition to its traditional, in-person classes this fall.

Boston schools sent a survey to families about the idea in April and ultimately submitted a summary description to the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education last month for feedback.

But Cassellius told the School Committee the district will no longer be considering the option for the coming school year.
