    The socialization argument can be used by parents who just want their kids in school so they can have their "life" back. I've seen allusions to this on Facebook many times. There are also parents who are the opposite and do not want their kids to be around anyone so they are willing to keep them home.

    Will the online teachers be teaching from home or from school? We have been "strongly encouraged" to teach from school, even though our students will be 100% remote. It's not a requirement, but we've been asked to speak with our administrator about why we are not able to teach from school if we're going to be teaching from home.

    Teachers assigned to the online school will be teaching from home. They're considering the online school a completely separate school within the district, with their own principal and everything. So teachers assigned to that will have no involvement with their "regular" buildings this year. I'm not sure what in person teachers will do during periods of remote learning for outbreaks and whatnot. I would assume stay at home also, but who knows.

    Our district is giving everyone an option of either returning in class or going 100% online.
    We have thousands of students that will chose the online option (from what I hear), more than the number of teachers who want to go fully online as well... so there are teachers being forced to go remote because there's not enough students in the buildings
    And so the online kids will have online teachers, and the in-class teachers will only be responsible for their in-person students (but they'll still have to be responsible for those students on their off days since we're doing the A/B hybrid model).
