POWAY, Calif. (KGTV) -- The Poway Unified School District hopes to reopen middle and high school by mid-March, officials said late Friday night.
The district’s safety review process to reopen was approved by San Diego County just after 7 p.m. Friday. The appeal will now be sent to the state, which has seven business days to either approve or deny the application, the district said.
If approved, the district is preparing to reopen middle and high schools by March 15 with on-campus learning planned for two days a week.
