Massachusetts Education Commissioner Jeffrey Riley this week approved most of the 77 requests local districts made to delay the start of full-time in-person learning, which is supposed to begin by April 5 in kindergarten through grade 5 and no later than April 28 for grades 6-8.

Some districts filed more than one request to delay the start date.

Here’s a rundown on the status of each request:

Approved delay for full-time in-person classes

These districts have been in full remote learning or were in the midst of phasing in part-time in-person learning when the state issued the edict to open up classrooms five days a week. Full-time start date will vary by district.
