KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Following a recent survey, the Center School District is changing its hybrid learning model.
Students following a hybrid schedule will now learn in-person Monday through Thursday each week. Classes on Fridays will remain virtual for cleaning and planning purposes.
The change currently only applies to middle and high school students in special programs. According to a recent letter from the district, those students began in-person learning Monday.
Children in other areas will begin hybrid learning later this month.
Starting Feb. 17, the district will welcome back hybrid learners in kindergarten through fifth grade, as well as select students in the Yellowjacket Early Learning Center and Center Alternative School.
Targeted groups of middle and high school students will be welcomed back beginning Feb. 22 using the hybrid model. Those targeted groups will consist of students who might struggle to tune in regularly for virtual classes or are struggling to keep grades up in a virtual setting.
The district will contact parents with more information.
