According to the San Francisco Examiner, the district has completed detailed assessments of about 36 school sites so far for the first phase of hybrid teaching.

The hope is to have all 72 elementary schools and 12 early education sites assessed by early December so improvements can be made and site plans implemented for the spring semester.
