Beginning August 3, Nexstar’s KDVR Denver is focusing coverage on the changing landscape of the 2020-21 school year. They are examining the differences between the districts; what classrooms could look like during the pandemic; best systems for online learning; and how districts are preparing to help children without access to technology. Topics they are investigating include what the state is doing to help school districts move forward; how after-school activities and sports are pivoting; what protocols will be in place for in-class learning; test scores and testing; how schools are dealing with and without school resource officers; busing issues; college challenges; and teacher shortages related to COVID-19.
In addition to the three weeks of important stories, KDVR is holding a “Changing Course: Back to School During the COVID-19 Pandemic Townhall” on August 4. The townhall featured a host of local educators, teachers, and doctors who will come together to answer parents’ questions about how learning will be different this school year and what is being done to keep children safe from COVID-19. This live telecast will be hosted by Erica Gonzalez, Deb Takahara and Keagan Harsha.
