D11 to start the school year with mostly remote learning

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.

  1. District 11 and 20 both. I hope that the other Districts will follow suit and see the insanity of what they are attempting. There is only one way to achieve social distancing. Reduce the population in the Building. Good Job.

    1. If you better understood the virus then you wouldn’t be so scared. So happy my kids get to go back to school in person. They will be a whole lot smarter for it. No worries about the Corona we deal with the flu every year and it is the same protocols.
