This fall, Sioux City public school students could be attending class in-person, use a hybrid model or learn online.  That was the decision made at the meeting of the Sioux City Community School Board Monday.  The board approved a “Return to Learn” plan for this fall.  Concerns about the spread of COVID-19 closed schools in mid-March, and they never reopened. The spread of the coronavirus would determine the level of in-person schooling.  Board president Jeremy Saint said the vote for a “skeleton” plan means more work needs to be done. 

In-person attendance at school would require social distancing, regular disinfecting and wearing a mask when changing classes or attending other large gatherings. The hybrid model would involve students staying home some days. Summer school would be offered for students who need extra instruction.  School Superintendent Dr. Paul Gausman explains how the plan will work.
