MARSHALL (KMHL) – Schools in Minnesota will begin with their distance learning plans starting on Monday.

Final preparations for those plans are underway in the Marshall School District.

Superintendent Scott Monson told Marshall Radio Wednesday that teachers and staff have been working very hard to come up with a new plan to help educate students and deserve a lot of gratitude.

“Our teachers and staff are working just as hard as I am, they are the ones who on March 30th are going to be in front of kids or calling kids or researching different resources to make available for kids,” said Monson. “We just have so much going on right now, I just want to make sure I deflect that to our staff for everything they’re doing.”

Monson said the school district is planning for a detailed distance learning plan.

“We’re not going to change schedules, we’re not going to just teach reading, writing math, and social studies,” said Monson. “We’re going to continue to focus on everything.”

That distance learning plan will be in effect through at least May 4th, according to the governor’s order.
