Here in the Los Angeles area, the private high school where my wife teaches just went online only and the state university she's taking classes at also went online only.

Yes, it's crazy. I'm trying to figure out how to teach an eight-week negotiation course entirely online.
I will take a crash course in Zoom tomorrow morning before beginning my classes. confused smiley

My institution is holding in-person classes until Friday, then starting online-only on Monday.

Should be interesting...

University I work at is also going online for classes after Spring Break which is next week. Initial announcement was until at least April 3rd, and possibly to be extended through the end of the semester five weeks later. Some students with lab courses tat can't be online may be requested to return after Spring Break to be able to complete those.

Waiting to see if my son's school (he's in middle school, but the school itself is K-12), goes online. they're on spring break next week. When they return, there'll be two months left. He's too young to stay at home by himself, so one of us would have to be home every day. My wife and I could probably swing it, as they're pretty liberal about allowing telework here, but I could see this putting a huge strain on other parents faced with the same situation.

My nephew is at Virginia Tech, currently on spring break. He just got the word that the break is extended for another week, and all online classes after that. He's pretty pumped about the first part...

My kid's private Florida university is on spring break, but everyone expects they'll move everything online as well.

One of the kid's professors went home to Germany and already let his students know he won't be coming back but teaching the remainder of that class online.

Florida Tech, by any chance?

ERAU-Daytona.

The local HBCU has already told their students to extend their Spring Break by a week.

My son's college also got spring break extended a week and then they transition to all online. They have no reported COVID cases their side of the state, yet, though some reports of exposure. School districts mostly open but they are all making contingencies. Online is not an easy answer for K-12, especially for less affluent families, both for access to technology and for parent supervision.

There are open discussions amongst staff at my school district about how to transition to an online plan. Given that we are a Title 1 school district it will be difficult. Upwards of 20% of our students do not have online access at home. Add in that many students are less than motivated to become independently driven learners, and it will not be easy.
