With students this past school year being able to go back into the buildings to learn (with the option to remain learning at home) a lot of them missed out on an entire year of their schooling especially high school students.  Sports were stopped due to the pandemic and a lot of students were counting and that school year to earn a scholarship to colleges.  Since a lot of things were postponed or canceled altogether should there have been an alternative for students who missed that time an if not, moving forward should students always have the option to do remote learning?

Personally, I know that high school is different from college but for instance when a student athlete in college gets hurt they get the chance to redshirt and/or get the chance to have eligibility added to their scholarship, I do feel that the majority of the schools in the country did not take into account the affect this pandemic would have on the student instead they were more interested in how much money would be lost.

So I pose this question to you all what can be done for school age students (K-12) moving forward amid this pandemic even though things are getting towards some type of normalcy?
