The school year for students in the San Diego Unified School District will continue on, just without any students in the classroom. The district is ramping up remote instruction for its teachers and more than 100,000 students.

It's part of the new reality. Students still have to learn, but learning is moving out of the classroom.

The San Diego Unified School District is ramping up a massive program of getting computers out to students who need them so they can participate in "remote instruction."

At the same time, the district is also adding new sites to its food distribution program.
