HOPKINS, Minn. (KEYC) - Governor Tim Walz visits an elementary school in Hopkins Tuesday afternoon, calling on the Minnesota Legislature to pass a summer learning plan.

He’s urging the Minnesota Legislature to pass the package in Minnesota’s COVID-19 recovery budget. Governor Walz says the $150 million packages will help students catch up on learning disruptions from the pandemic. It includes proposals for school- and community-based learning opportunities, field trips and hands-on learning, mental health support, summer preschool, and college courses for graduating seniors.
