Fayette Co. scraps hybrid learning plans, will stay mainly virtual
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The Fayette County School Board and Superintendent Manny Caulk have decided the district will remain in NTI-2DL with targeted services at least through this semester.
Members of the school board said this decision gives families and teachers certainty on what the future plan is. This comes as they cite the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the state.
The meeting was a special called meeting to discuss the future and hopes of getting students back into the classrooms.
However, it was then voted on for the district to remain in NTI learning. It passed and now students will carry on as they have for months now. The district is still offering expanded services.
They say the plans of different learning styles such as hybrid models could be too complex and the district is way too big for a one-size-fits-all model.
The district says they will re-evaluate students coming back in person for the spring semester.
“What we’re hearing from a lot of families is just they want to make sure we have routine, that we aren’t losing instruction and that we’re doing we realize looks different across the district but we still want to make sure that it’s equitable across the district," chairwoman Stephanie Spires said.
The board’s regularly scheduled meeting is set for Monday.
