(KWWL) - Governor Reynolds is standing firm in her requirement for Iowa schools to teach 50 percent in-person this school year.
"Schools that choose not to return to school for at least 50 percent in person instruction, are not defying me, they're defying the law," Reynolds said. "Legislature unanimously passed a bill, sentate file 2310, requiring in-person learning as the primary mode of education and that's what we are working to implement."
The Governor also says if schools move to primarily remote learning without approval, according to the law, those days will not be in compliance won't count towards instructional time.
This means those days would have to be made up.
She also threatened possible disciplinary action for school administrators who defy that requirement.
