SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News)- The Syracuse City School District announced its proposal for reopening schools for the fall. The District School Board held a meeting yesterday to discuss the precautions necessary to get students back in school within the next couple months.
The proposal states that students from preschool to grade eight will take part in a hybrid program. District Superintendent, Jaime Alicea said in the meeting, “One of our proposals is to do a hybrid model for students from pre-k to eighth grade. 50 percent of the students will attend twice per week.”
The School Board also mentioned that all students will have the option to go completely online. High School students will not take part in the hybrid program and will instead be fully online, with the exception of in-person labs and significant exams.
The Syracuse City School District is not alone in its proposed model for the upcoming school year. The Liverpool School District also unveiled plans for a hybrid model.
The district will continue to work on the proposal before submitting it for approval to the state on Friday.
