CCS is now prioritizing staff on who will receive the first shots as the district transitions to a hybrid learning model for its elementary school students, career tech kids and students with complex needs next month. CCS has been mostly full remote learning since schools closed last spring. The Columbus Education Association told ABC 6 On Your Side it wanted its members fully vaccinated before they walk back into a classroom.
“At this point in time, I do not have the vaccines to vaccinate Columbus City Schools teachers or staff,” said CPH Commissioner Dr. Mysheika Roberts at the CCS Board of Education meeting Tuesday night. “You’ve got 9,000 employees. I do not anticipate getting 9,000 doses of the vaccine on February 1st.”
