Not all Nevada school districts are the same, and some rural school superintendents say their path to reopening differs from their urban counterparts amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Esmeralda County has reported no confirmed cases of COVID-19 and Superintendent M. Neil Terhune hopes to resume in-person school instruction when students return in August.

Districts covering Las Vegas and Reno are making complex plans to space students apart and blend remote and in-person instruction.

But Terhune calls the challenges his schools face relatively minor. He says the key will be in the details.
