Cincinnati’s largest school district is still remote-only and planning to stay that way for at least a month. That decision stands despite word from the lieutenant governor that Ohio will only prioritize vaccines for school districts using in-person learning.
Board President Carolyn Jones said the main reason they closed school buildings was staff shortages. The district does have a plan to return to blended learning, but it all depends on COVID-19 case numbers.
The current plan calls to bring students back in phases. Pre-K through third grade and specialized units return Feb. 1 if the number of cases is below 40 for two weeks.
That hasn’t happened since October.
