In February, the Rochester City School District plans on allowing some students to return to school, following a plan that was presented by the Superintendent, Lesli Meyers-Small.
Meyers-Small showed the school board her ideas on Thursday and suggested that elementary students should be allowed to return to school in February, followed by students in grades 7-12 a few weeks later.
Things won’t be back to the way they were before the pandemic, but will have a solidified hybrid model where the students are in school two days / week and three days of remote learning.
“I go back to our first core belief, which is that our students are our first priority and they’re at the heart of every decision we make,” Myers-Small said. “In my opinion, we did that tonight.”
The board approved the plan by a 4-2 vote, with Willa Powell and Cynthia Elliott in opposition and Beatriz LeBron absent.
