State educational officials say distance learning doesn’t mean Mom and Dad become the teacher.

“We are not asking parents and guardians to become the teachers,” said Department of Education director Heather Mueller. “That is still the responsibility of our educators. They have spent the last eight days preparing to do this week and to make sure our students have the opportunity to continue to learn.”

State Department of Education Director Heather Mueller says distance learning will begin today and continue until at least May fourth.
