TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -Topeka Public Schools took to Facebook on Friday to answer parents’ questions on their new reopening plan.

The plan was revealed at Thursday night’s board meeting and parents had questions on what the virtual learning would look like, how to enroll their children in classes, and procedures for students returning to buildings.

USD 501′s Superintendent Dr. Tiffany Anderson says it is optional for students to be in the physical classrooms.

”It’s really a parents choice of how they would like for their child to be educated,” Dr. Anderson said. “Right now we have some parents who currently chose home school. Approximately 800 families signed up to do remote only 100 percent of the time. It includes 400 elementary and approximately 450 or so secondary.”
