Some Southwest Ohio schools start the new year with remote learning

Schools split between remote and in-person learning as winter break ends

Brad Underwood, WKRC |

Winter break is over for the majority of students in Ohio. However, a large number of them will continue to learn at home — a learning model which the Ohio Education Association supports.

“We believe the time is right now for the entire state to have a temporary transition away from in-person instruction,” said OEA President Scott DiMauro.

DiMauro says a return to school should only happen if extra safety precautions are taken.

“We want to see health boards across the state of Ohio consistently apply to CDC guidelines and be responsible and have accountability for signing off on school districts re-opening,” said DiMauro.
