‘It is no easy task balancing health and safety.’ CPS board president on return to in-person learning

Madeline Mitchell, Cincinnati Enquirer |

CPS board president Carolyn Jones released a statement Thursday afternoon regarding the vote, noting the decision was and will continue to be “filled with emotion.”

“It is no easy task balancing health and safety in a pandemic with what we are charged to do as Board Members, which is to provide our students with an excellent foundation for life,” Jones wrote. 

“Based on the advice of our health partners, the incredible job the CPS team has done implementing health and safety protocols, the very low level of transmission of the virus within our buildings, and the rollout of the vaccine to CPS staff, the majority of the board believes that it is safe to begin a slow, methodical, phased-in return to blended learning during the month of February.”
