Owensboro Public Schools approves reopening plan for upcoming academic year
WATCH: OPS school board holds meeting on reopening plan
KENTUCKY (WFIE) - Owensboro Public Schools officially approved its reopening plan for the upcoming academic year on Thursday evening.
District officials will be offering two learning options for students during the 2020-21 school year.
The first option is an A/B Model, which is set to be a combination of in-person and distance learning.
School administrators say half of their students would go to school on Mondays and Tuesdays, with the other half attending Thursdays and Fridays. Officials say no students would attend Wednesday for deep cleaning.
The other option for parents to chose is the OPS Virtual Academy.
OPS superintendent Dr. Matt Constant says so far more than 900 students have shown interest in the virtual academy option. He’s says that’s about 15% of the student population. He says that number could fluctuate as parents still have the option to change their minds.— Erin McNally (@emcnally14news) July 23, 2020
OPS officials held their reopening meeting at the district’s central office on Griffith Avenue.
