Columbus City Schools Will Bring Some Students Back Into Classrooms In October


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.
