Beloit School District Approves Hybrid Learning Model
The Beloit School District unanimously approved a plan to reopen schools to a hybrid model, as long as COVID-19 transmission remains low. The BDN reports that the current proposal has students split into groups, with A students coming in the first half of the week, and B students the second half. This would include students moving from class to class. Students remaining in distance learning can continue to participate in virtual learning from home. The plan for the hybrid model is to remain in that format for the remainder of the school year. The new model includes many new strict rules for students to follow, including masks except for meals, and designated entrances and exits, as well as plexiglass at all desks. The changes go into effect on April 8.
