The Mount Vernon School Board on Wednesday approved the school district’s Remote Plus plan, which will have most students learning online this fall.

After a 90-minute presentation, held online because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the board approved the plan unanimously, board President Larry Otos said.

The presentation outlined the district’s plans in numerous areas, including child care, its dual language program, and how it will help parents learn to help their children with the online learning model, Otos said.

“Our team has really put a lot of time and effort into trying to make the best of what is impossible,” Otos said. “It’s really focused on the kids and the students who need it.”
