(KWWL) -- Do you know what your school district's plan is for returning to school this fall?
As the start to the school year inches closer, school districts are working to finalize health and safety plans.
Earlier in July, Governor Reynolds said that schools must prioritize in-person learning for core academic subjects.
She announced that schools will not be able to provide more than 50 percent of their instruction remotely unless she authorizes it. If they wish to do so, they must seek a waiver from the state, which is what Iowa City has done.
On July 30, new guidance from the state said that permission for temporary online learning can only be granted if a county exceeds 15% coronavirus positivity rate over a two-week period, and at least 10% of students are absent.
Here is a list of schools that have released initial return to learn plans or announcements:
