As the 2020-21 school year gets underway in parts of the country, 62 of the largest 101 districts in the US will be starting with full online learning, which accounts for nearly 7 million students.
The latest decision to start the year with full remote learning came from Chicago Public Schools, the third largest district in the US.
By CNN's count, there are five districts among this top group that have yet to make a final decision, including New York City, which is the largest in the country with more than 1.1 million students.
The others are Hillsborough County, Florida; Dallas, Texas; Greenville, South Carolina; and Boston, Massachusetts.
There are more than 13,000 school districts in the US and more than 50 million children who attend public school, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.
