The governor and Legislature reached accord over the weekend on a $6.5 billion school reopening package that will compel most schools to offer at least some form of in-person instruction starting April 1. The plan calls for prioritizing, but not requiring, vaccination of school staff as a condition of school reopening and partially softens some of the sharp corners in prior reopening proposals.
