During the Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, May 11, Superintendent of Schools Melony Brady-Shanley announced that the school district intends to go to full in-person learning for the 2021-2022 school year.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, families have had the option to enroll in distance learning during this school year.
According to Brady-Shanley, as of April 30, 12 percent of students enrolled in the district have participated in distance learning.
“Based on the data we have received back, 80 percent of those families will return their children to in-person learning,” Brady-Shanley said. “In-person education benefits students instructional, socially, and developmentally. Any family not participating in in-school learning will go into home-based educational programs.”
Brady-Shanely said that distance learning may be used by the district in the future when it comes to specialized classes, remediation, the use of virtual platforms to expand teaching approaches for in-person learning and if the need arises due to emergency building-related issues.
