The fall semester is right around the corner, and with the coronavirus still spreading throughout the world, people are wondering if schools are going to reopen, and if so, how are they going to do it safely. So ATMI senior producer Quinn White called up Joe Zawodny, a director for the Anchorage School District, to talk about their plans for reopening schools and keeping students and teachers safe.

The interview was conducted on July 16, 2020, before ASD’s decision to start the semester with online classes.
