SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- As schools gear up to start another school year, many students, parents and community members are wondering what each school district has planned to keep children and teachers safe from the coronavirus.
ABC7 reached out to school districts across the Bay Area through a survey to see what their plans are for the upcoming school year. Our interactive map shows which districts responded to the survey and what their answers are to each question.
If you are a Bay Area education employee and your school did not receive this survey, it can be accessed by clicking here. We will update this page as we get more responses from school officials.

16 out of the 19 districts that took the survey responded saying masks will be mandatory if/when schools open in-person, while 17 out of 19 also responded saying the district will be distance learning to start the year. All 19 said they will provide meals to students in need.
In response to how prepared the district is to transition to distance learning, 15 said very prepared, three said somewhat prepared and one said not very prepared.
Eight districts said 90-100% of students were engaged in distanced learning last year. One said 80-90%, four said 70-80%, one said less than 50% and five did not track this.
Take a look at the interactive map above for a look at responses from the following school districts:
