Minnesota schools are in the second week of distance learning. Mankato area schools superintendent Paul Peterson says this is a new adventure for everyone.

“It’s about dialing in the appropriate amount of quantity of work, thinking about what’s developmentally appropriate for our kids and also making sure we’re being sensitive to everything going on in the world right now. It’s very important to find the proper balance to make sure we’re still fulfilling our mission to educate students,” said Peterson.

Peterson says he’s received very few reports of technical issues related to distance learning. Governor Walz has stated distance learning will continue in the state until at least May fourth.
