On Wednesday, district leaders presented four options during a Board of Education meeting:
- In-person classes: The first scenario would have students return to classrooms five days a week. The district does not have the space to allow for placing student desks 6 feet apart, so it would space students 3 feet apart in this model.
- Blended learning: This scenario would involve students taking in-person classes in schools either one or two days per week, while learning from home on the remaining days. The scenario has higher staffing and transportation costs.
- Distance learning: This scenario would have students learning from home five days a week. It poses a challenge for families in terms of child care. It would also lead to a decrease in staff and would pose a low-risk safety risk but a high academic risk.
- Hybrid learning: This option calls for elementary students attending in-person classes five days per week, and high school students attending in-person classes just one or two days per month. This would eliminate the need for child care for families with the youngest children.
