    (CNN)Because of a blockbuster docket, an unprecedented leak, a fraught political atmosphere and Covid, everything has changed at the Supreme Court.Under normal circumstances on decision days at the end of June, the Supreme Court emerges from behind crimson curtains to finally issue the most controversial cases of the term after months of closed-door deliberations. Wearing their judicial robe and exhausted from the final push of work, the justices take their seats and the majority opinion is read by its author. Latest Ginni Thomas controversy means the Supreme Court cant escape the 2020 electionThe hand-down can take several minutes as the audience of spouses, staff, spectators and journalists digest what's being read aloud. Often times, the justice who penned the principal dissent, also chooses to address the audience, offering a fiery oral critique of the majority opinion.None of that is expected to happen this month.Instead, the courtroom's majestic chamber is dark -- ostensibly due to lingering Covid concerns. The plaza has been completely walled off by security fences, a move prompted by protests that erupted last month after a draft opinion...
    There hasn’t been a school board election quite like this in Los Angeles Unified in more than a decade — no record spending, much less mudslinging — and no deluge of campaign mailers with candidates backed by the teachers union facing off against those backed by charter school advocates or a city mayor. Still, there’s a lot at stake leading up to the June 7 primary for three board seats: Topmost is overseeing the academic and emotional recovery of students from the COVID-19 pandemic. And that will mean getting the most out of record-high, short-term funding. The seven-member governing board also must navigate rapidly dropping enrollment, which could lead to school closures and worsen potentially serious long-term financial stress. The two incumbents, Kelly Gonez and Nick Melvoin, face no well-funded challenge, even though the teachers union spent millions to oppose their first bids for office in 2017. This time the teachers union is endorsing Gonez and silently conceding to Melvoin. The most competitive race is for the open seat in District 2 — which covers downtown and stretches north...
    There won’t be any homecoming dances in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, public schools this fall. However, the school system said that there will be other traditional homecoming celebrations. Events still going on as scheduled include the “Spirit Week” activities, parades, pep rallies in school stadiums and homecoming athletics events. Schools can also plan other outdoor celebratory events, such as cookouts, where distancing is easier to accomplish, Superintendent George Arlotto said. Arlotto said that the move aims to provide the safest environments for students. He said that they hope that the homecoming dances can be held later in the school year. “As I have said repeatedly, our focus has been and remains on keeping our schools open for instruction through the entirety of the school year,” Arlotto said in a statement. “While we all want high school students and families to take part in the excitement that comes with annual homecoming activities, we must proceed judiciously. Sponsoring multi-hour events where hundreds of students are in very close proximity to each other at an indoor event is not one that is prudent...
    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Ten Bay Area and Northern California health officers gathered for this first time since March 2020 Thursday, without face masks or physical distancing, urging schools to reopen fully for in-person learning in the fall."The lack of in-person learning has disrupted education, weakened the social supports provided by school communities, negatively impacted mental health and prevented participation in the rituals and shared milestones that tie our communities together," said Susan Phillip, San Francisco's health officer.Phillip and her fellow officers asked school administrators to start planning now for a full return to the classroom at every grade level."The cost to our kids by keeping them out of school and remote learning is immense and far outweighs any benefit," said San Mateo County health officer Scott Morrow. "There is no other viable option."The health officers from Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Benito, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and Sonoma counties (plus the city of Berkeley, which has its own health department) cited students' mental health as a top concern. Morrow said data shows an increase in...
    TEACHING in a school is no more risky for catching Covid than the average job, new data has revealed. It comes as schools are getting ready to fling back open their gates to pupils next Monday. ???? Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates... 2Kids will be back in school from Monday as classrooms reopenCredit: PA:Press Association Unions and teachers have raised safety fears over going back into classrooms. But teachers were found to have similar antibody levels to other workers in their local area, research published by the Office for National Statistics revealed. Dr Shamez Ladhani, Consultant Paediatrician at PHE and the study’s chief investigator, said in a message to any worried teachers: “I think we are in a much better place than we have ever been before. “Where we are now is really an amazing place for reopening schools in the right way. The country is still in lockdown, rates of infection are falling rapidly.  “If you are going to work then going to school is not necessarily riskier than any other profession out there.  “It's...
    TOWSON, Md. (WJZ) — Baltimore County Public Schools hosted a virtual back-to-school summit Wednesday evening. The school district said the virtual summit was about coming together to support one another and problem solve during these unprecedented times. There was a conversation among Baltimore County Public School community educators. CORONAVIRUS COVERAGE: TIMELINE: Coronavirus In Maryland, Tracking The Spread Latest coronavirus stories from WJZ Latest CDC Guidelines “How they taught, planned, collaborated, supported, thought and worked differently during this virtual environment,” Baltimore County Schools Superintended Dr. Darryl Williams said. It’s the start of a fall semester unlike any other. “There are many challenges that we are faced with right now,” Dr. Williams said. “We’re dealing with the pandemic, but we’re also dealing with social unrest and injustice and racial tensions. There’s so many things.” Last week, Baltimore County Public Schools released a proposed timeline for reopening schools for in-person learning. Teachers and staff are set to return on October 19. Students with disabilities and the youngest learners, like Pre-K students, would come back in November. Among them would be 13-year-old Aven,...
    MONUMENT, Colo. (CBS4)– School districts had until Monday morning to decide if they would play fall or spring football under new Colorado High School Activities Association-approved guidelines. The administration gave districts the choice of which season to compete in. (credit: CBS) Schools can only play in one season, and there will be champions named in each season. CHSAA released a list of all the schools in the state on Tuesday that will play this fall. Denver Public Schools and Aurora Public Schools decided to play in the spring. “At first we didn’t really believe it,” said Luke McAllister, a senior at Palmer Ridge High School in Monument. “My first reaction was I was pumped knowing I could play this fall.” Luke’s team is one of many across the state opting to play fall football under new CHSAA guidelines. With a verbal commitment to play at CSU next year, Luke says getting more practice in before he plays at the college level will help him long term.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Dozens of Pittsburgh-area districts are headed back to school on Tuesday, but no two will look the same this year. “I think seeing how everyone reacts to being separated and wearing our masks, just seeing how everyone adjusts and stuff,” said Mars High School sophomore Sofia Gonzalez. Ahead of the big day, stores were packed as parents and students picked up some last-minute supplies. (Photo Credit: KDKA) “Obviously, masks and antibacterial stuff. All that hand sanitizers,” Gonzalez said. For mom Jennifer Bainbridge, she’s been stocked and ready for the last few weeks. “My kid is the one who is going to lose a mask or face shield each week or somehow it will get flushed in the toilet. I don’t know what he’s going to do, but it’s going to be interesting. So we stocked up and we started stocking up a month or two ago,” Bainbridge said. As for transportation, Bainbridge said the Mars School District encourages parents to drive their kids to school. “I split it up. So I’ll drive him, then he will ride...
    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania school sports’ governing body has told Gov. Tom Wolf it wants to talk with his aides about “possible options for fall sports” among its member schools. The letter from Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association executive director Robert Lombardi provided to The Associated Press on Wednesday argued that school-sanctioned sports are in a better position than recreational leagues to ensure compliance with pandemic safety measures. “While, due to outbreaks in different areas of the state, some schools may not be able to play some or all sports, we believe there remains a viable path to permit students in many schools the opportunity to participate in interscholastic athletics in a controlled, healthy and safe manner,” Lombardi wrote in the letter dated Tuesday. A spokesperson for Wolf said the administration has been in touch with the PIAA about having further discussions.

    CHICAGO — In Chicago, as in cities across the country, summer school carries higher stakes this year.  After the profound disruption to learning wrought by the coronavirus outbreak, summer instruction will give students a chance to catch up on school work — and credits — they missed this past spring. It will allow some students to get back on track for fall studies or to graduate. With an all-virtual format, it will be a summer learning season like no other. The district this week shared some information about its plans for summer school, which starts Monday for some students. A push to sign up students is already under way, LaTanya McDade, chief academic officer, told the district’s governing board this week.  “We’re really working very hard to make sure all eligible students and their families are informed about summer learning opportunities,” she said. Leaders stressed the need for a more uniform approach across the district after a spring of remote learning in which schools had leeway to design their own plans — and saw mixed results. The district will use...
