COLORADO SPRINGS — As COVID-19 data begins to show favorable trends, School District 11 is looking at plans to return students to the classroom.

At a D11 Board of Education meeting Thursday night, Superintendent Dr. Michael Thomas suggested a staggered in-person start.

That could come as early as mid-September if health data continues to show positive trends.

If that happens, the District would bring back elementary and middle school students for in-person learning five days a week.

High school students would remain on the hybrid schedule, and the District would continue to offer online, remote learning for families who choose that option.

More details will be discussed at the next regular Board of Education meeting, scheduled for 4 p.m. on September 9.
