The majority of high school students will remain completely online, even after the end of the first quarter. Meanwhile, lower grades will start returning in phases:
- October 19: Pre-K through 3rd grade, and Career and Technical Education students
- October 26: 4th and 5th grade
- November 2: 6th, 7th and 8th grade
The district’s remote-learning plan originally had all grades learning from home until at least October 27. But since that was announced in July, Franklin County has dropped from a “red” level three public health emergency to an “orange” level two under Ohio’s Public Health Advisory System.
Under the new hybrid model, most Columbus students will attend in-person classes two days a week and learn online from home the other three.
