California lawmakers to vote on governor's reopening school plan

The parent advocacy group, Open Schools California, called the governor's plan a failure because it doesn't require minimum hours of instruction. Districts could reopen for as little as one hour of classroom instruction a week - and still count as reopened and qualify for the money.

Deal offers California school districts money to reopen classrooms

Under the deal announced Monday, school districts could receive up to $6.6 billion if they reopen classrooms by March 31. The proposal does not require staff and students to be vaccinated, and districts are not required to have agreements with teachers' unions.
