COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- The Colorado Springs School District 11 announced Wednesday that it will mostly be doing remote learning when the school year starts on August 24.
A hybrid schedule with in-person classes will only be targeted for "students with the greatest academic need for levels of in-school support," a spokesperson said.
The majority of students will do remote learning for the first quarter of the new school year. On October 15, the D11 board will review the state's health data and determine whether allowing in-person learning is feasible for both students and staff in a safe manner.
Some special exemptions may be allowed for students going through particular programs like AP, IB and CTE classes, which may require laboratory work. English Language Learners and students requiring special education may also be able to follow a hybrid schedule.
