Akron families surveyed split 60-40 on hybrid vs. remote end of semester |

As part of a school reopening discussion on Monday, leaders shared the results of a survey of more than 15,000 that showed parents split 60% to 40% in favor of a hybrid model. The district originally intended to start the school year in a hybrid model, but voted in July to return fully remotely.

The survey showed that a higher percentage of families with students in lower grades preferred the hybrid model than in higher grades, with 71% of respondents with kindergarten students, 67% for 1st grade and 61% for 2nd grade.
