Boston schools are considering whether a virtual school makes sense for some
Schools across Massachusetts have received a crash-course, trial-by-error introduction to completely remote learning since the coronavirus pandemic took hold early last year.

School officials are probing the possibility, not as a replacement for traditional instruction for all students, but rather an option for those who want to take advantage of it.
