In a 4-3 vote Wednesday night, the Cincinnati Public Schools Board of Education approved a five-day in-person learning model for the rest of the school year, which will start in the fourth quarter, March 31. This includes Walnut Hills High School.
OFFICIAL RELEASE FROM C.P.S.
In a survey conducted last week, 58 percent of parents, excluding Walnut Hills High School, indicated that they want their children to return to in-person learning five days a week during fourth quarter. At Walnut Hills, 54 percent were in favor of this.
Walnut Hills will follow a phased-in approach and details will be shared with families at a later date.
Two options are available for parents who prefer to send their children back to school five days a week,Cincinnati Digital Academy or distance learning through a student’s current school.
The district will continue to upgrade its infrastructure and we are excited to offer a concurrent learning option for all interested families during the 2021-2022 school year.
Concurrent learning means students will continue with distance learning from home but will be able to remote into their classroom for their daily lessons with their teacher.
Families at Walnut Hills will participate in a pilot for concurrent learning during the spring.
