Students in K to 12 education will be returning to school in September, with only a partial return this school year.

Students in post-secondary education will be returning to school in September with a mix of online and in-class learning.

On Wednesday, B.C. Premier John Horgan said classes will fully resume in September.

Routine daily screening protocols would be place at schools, but provincial health officer Doctor Bonnie Henry is expected to provide more details.

Premier John Horgan says the province wants to do a dry run in June to consider how the education system could operate to prevent a surge of COVID-19 cases.

The current plan means online and in-school education would be a reality but the back-to-school experience in September could also include such measures and smaller classrooms.
