Bringing Back the Neediest Students First: Cleveland Considers Joining Emerging Trend

District CEO Eric Gordon said he and his staff are debating limiting in-person learning to elementary students and those with special needs if schools are able to shift Nov. 9 to a “hybrid” plan — a mix of in-person and online classes. Whether any in-person classes resume, or if lessons remain online for the second quarter of the school year, depends on the city and county’s COVID-19 case counts over the next few weeks.

High school students would keep taking classes online under that plan, which is similar to how districts in the Chicago, San Antonio and Seattle areas are phasing in a return to school.
