Cincinnati Public Schools will offer five-day in-person, remote and blended learning in the 2021-2022 school year, according to a resolution the board passed unanimously Monday night.
The resolution states the community has demanded “robust and authentic choices.” Superintendent Laura Mitchell said offering all three choices has been “extremely difficult”; she said the district has tried to offer choice this school year in a way which is, ultimately, “not equitable.”
But board member Melanie Bates noted families “need to know” now, in the midst of registrations and school lotteries, if the district will be in-person in the autumn, and Eve Bolton said CPS has to offer a remote option, too.
“That’s now an expectation,” Bolton said.
