FOX 31: ‘We felt prepared’: Aurora Public Schools begins school year virtually

Story excerpt:

"Thousands of students returned to school Tuesday morning in Aurora, firing up their computers for virtual learning.

Aurora Public Schools voted last month to begin the year remotely for at least the first eight weeks, with hopes to return to in-person learning in October.

'The kids seemed to really take it right in stride,' said Jenni Bills, a fourth grade teacher at Vista PEAK Exploratory. 'I’ve been teaching for 23 years, so this was a whole new experience for me.'

Bills held live classes throughout the day, and says attendance and participation were good.

'Our biggest question was, will kids know where they’re supposed to be going?' she said. 'I think it went pretty flawless, for the most part. We had a great turnout and it seemed to be done well.'"
