School boards recount success in keeping down COVID-19 in schools

New York State School Boards Association Executive Director Rob Schneider.

The COVID-19 rate has been climbing in New York, as everywhere else in the nation, but the infection rate in schools has remained low. And with some exceptions, many districts continue to offer part-time in-person learning.

In an interview with WBFO Albany Correspondent Karen DeWitt, the executive director of the New York State School Boards Association, Rob Schneider, explains how schools have pulled it off so far.

Karen DeWitt is Capitol Bureau Chief for New York State Public Radio, a network of 10 public radio stations in New York State. WBFO listeners are accustomed to hearing DeWitt’s insightful coverage throughout the day, including expanded reports on Morning Edition.
