Banta Elementary School District confirmed Wednesday that students will begin the 2020-21 school year with remote learning.

The announcement came two days after the San Joaquin County superintendent of schools and public health officer recommended that districts across the county use distance learning exclusively at least through the end of August.

Banta officials said students would be provided digital devices and textbooks for distance learning. The first day of school is Aug. 11.
