COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado Springs School District 11 released an updated back to school plan Wednesday.
The district said that after in-depth discussion, it has been determined that students will be starting the year on Aug. 24 with a hybrid model, targeting students with the greatest academic need for levels of in-school support. Other students will take part in the district's remote learning platform, Inspire Online.
This schedule will continue through the first quarter of the academic school year, ending October 15 for students. At that time the district said it will review current health data and district readiness to invite all students back in person for the second quarter.
The district said it will share more details soon about how the hybrid/remote learning model will work.
In a statement released Wednesday, the district said the desire of the District’s Board of Education and leadership teams is to return to in-person learning as much as is safely possible and as soon as possible.
