Philadelphia schools to test only symptomatic students, but teachers union opposes change

Dale Mezzacappa After randomly testing students for COVID last year, the Philadelphia school district plans to focus only on symptomatic students when school starts in less than two weeks — a change the teachers union opposes. Union President Jerry Jordan said that testing “must include asymptomatic students,” or those who are infected but don’t show any signs of the disease. But Superintendent William Hite said at Thursday’s board meeting that “it is more valuable for students to be in classrooms receiving instruction than to be removed for testing.” He said that the district wide student positivity rate was less than 1% during last year’s hybrid learning, when 27% of enrolled students returned to buildings in the spring. District officials expect most of the district’s 120,000 students to return for in-person learning when schools open today, Aug. 31.

UPDATED/CORRECTION William E. Cleary Sr. | CNBNews Gloucestercitynews.net graphic file GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (August 30, 2021)--This November's election in Gloucester City will have three different groups offering candidates for the positions on a council that is open.
