Boston Public Schools will remain open for in-person teaching to a limited number of students, despite Boston Teachers Union’s objections, according to a Wednesday Suffolk Superior Court ruling.
BTU had filed an injunction earlier this month, requesting that teachers be allowed to teach remotely while the City’s positivity rate remains above 4 percent.
Mayor Marty Walsh and BPS Superintendent Brenda Cassellius wrote in a joint statement that they approve of the court’s decision.
“We are pleased that the court has preserved the opportunity for our highest needs students to continue learning inside our schools,” they wrote, “supported with the critical services that they require and deserve.”
Former public school teacher Darin Detwiler, now assistant dean of Northeastern University’s College of Professional Studies, said while he opposes a full reopening of schools, he fully supports keeping schools open for the limited number of students that need it.
