SALEM, Ore.--The director of the Oregon Department of Education told school leaders to be ready for remote learning this fall if COVID-19 conditions warrant it.

Colt Gill held a conference call with superintendents and other officials this week. He also urged them to comply with mask mandates and other mitigation efforts.

At this time, districts are planning full-time, in-person classes throughout the school week.

Gov. Kate Brown has already mandated mask wearing for all students and staff in grades K-12 this fall.
