Ybarra's in-person learning bill heads to Governor's desk
April 7, 2021, (BOISE) – Legislation protecting Idaho children’s access to in-person education cleared the Senate by unanimous vote Tuesday evening and now heads to Gov. Brad Little’s desk.
“This was my top priority for this legislative session, and I am grateful lawmakers recognize its importance,” Superintendent of Public Instruction Sherri Ybarra said. “Educators and parents throughout Idaho agree that in-person interaction with teachers and peers is an essential part of an effective education, especially for our students with special needs. Idaho law will now reflect that priority while preserving districts’ ability to respond to local safety conditions.”
