The district's last day of in-person instruction was March 13, and school buildings will remain closed through the end of the school year in an attempt to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Students and teachers are using distance and online learning to finish out the remainder of the year.
But some front-line district employees who work in departments such as safety, facilities and food and nutrition can’t do their jobs from home. APS will begin paying those employees at a rate of time and a half for hours they work, beginning April 13. The district currently is on spring break, so it has stopped its food distribution and many other operations this week.
