    As the first day of school quickly approaches, many families have questions on school start/end times, what virtual learning will look like, and how this will affect families when parents have to work. One immediate clarification is in regards to the option of self-paced virtual learning. Schools will work with families whose schedules make live instruction challenging. Families will have access to instructional resources to be used in a self-directed manner and students can still keep pace with their classroom peers for assignments and assessment deadlines.
