CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - On Monday, a new law goes into effect, requiring Iowa schools to offer full-time in-person learning despite the pandemic.

Governor Reynolds signed the bill into law last month. It says if a school is switching to hybrid learning or virtual learning, it must also offer in-person classes.

A Public Health Disaster Declaration Governor Reynolds issues can waive the requirement.

The state can also waive it if the Department of Education grants a school waiver due to teachers quarantining.
