CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - The Iowa Department of Education on Thursday approved the Cedar Rapids School District’s waiver to move to online-only learning.

Remote learning began on Thursday for all grades and all schools, with a return to in-person learning scheduled for November 30.
Additionally, all in-person activities and athletics are suspended during this time.
The district cited the increasing COVID-19 cases in the community, the impact on the healthcare system and district staff absenteeism as reasons why the move was needed.
