New Jersey’s goal is to have students and staff back in school buildings for full days by the end of the 2020-21 school year.
As of now, only five public school districts and 11 charter and special services schools remain on fully remote instruction, representing about 53,000 students: That’s down from 142 schools and districts as of the beginning of March, he said.
25 districts, out of more than 600 are all-remote, the governor said, affecting about 115,000 students. That’s about 8.5% of the total student population in New Jersey.
The state is pushing to get 70% of its adult population vaccinated by June 30. That’s 4.7 million people, Murphy has said. So far nearly 3 million people have been fully vaccinated in the state.
Governor Murphy is also promising to continue to open the state’s economy further if the numbers continue falling.
