Columbus City Schools may be on full remote learning this fall

WBNS Columbus |

Dr. Talisa Dixon, the superintendent of Columbus City Schools, made that announcement during a call with reporters on Sunday. “I know parents want to know right now what we are going to do, but I just don’t have that answer right now,” she said.

Late last month the district announced a plan to have K-8 students attend in-person classes in a blended format, with 9-12 students learning remotely. The start date is Sept. 8. But after a recent meeting with officials with Columbus Public Health, Dr. Dixon said those plans may need to change.

Coronavirus case numbers are rising in the district’s attendance boundaries. Health leaders suggest it would not be safe to reopen prior to the city seeing four consecutive weeks of dropping numbers.
