Even though the plans will likely change before its scheduled opening date of August 31st, Algoma School District officials have provided parents and students an idea of what things will look like when they are invited back. In the reopening plan released on Thursday, Algoma School District released an in-person option and a virtual option. The in-person learning option will incorporate the “one-room schoolhouse model” in order to limit the number of different people kids interact with on a daily basis. Algoma Superintendent Nick Cochart says they wanted to come up with a solution that could provide the best outcomes for students.
The virtual learning option will include more personalized check-ins with teachers and other details that were brought up at the end of this past school year. Cochart emphasized that things will likely change and a hybrid model may have to be used to get through the school year.
