Beaverton School District extends distance learning

The Beaverton School District has decided to extend its distance learning program through the end of the first semester, Feb. 8.

The decision by the school board only affects students in grades 4th through 12th.

The school district sent an email to families Wednesday morning saying COVID-19 is not actively spreading in the school community, but the metrics are based on Washington and Multnomah counties, which have had rising cases.
