Milwaukee Public Schools 2020-21 year kicks off virtually

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Classes kicked off Tuesday, Sept. 1 for the 2020-2021 school year in our area, including Milwaukee Public Schools.

Under Phase one of the district's Road to Readiness Program, all students began with virtual learning to start the semester safely from home.

At Siefert Elementary, teachers were at their computers chatting virtually with students and parents. 

It's all meant to make sure students hit the ground running.

"I want families to know that we are here to support them along the way, the learning process that's taking place, and we want to make sure that each here in the city of Milwaukee is ready for a productive day of learning," said MPS Superintendent Dr. Keith Posley. 

Around 30,000 students in Milwaukee Public Schools' Early Start Program began the school year virtually back on Aug. 17.
