WAUKESHA, Wis. - With COVID-19 case numbers rising, what will the rest of the school year look like? The Waukesha Board of Education voted 6-3 on Wednesday, Nov. 11 to revert back to the "cohort hybrid learning model" for middle and high school students. It means virtual learning three days a week, and in-person learning two days per week.
The plan calls for virtual learning for all students on Mondays. One cohort will take part in face-to-face learning Tuesdays and Thursdays, with virtual learning Wednesdays and Fridays -- and vice versa for the other cohort.
The hyrbid learning model starts Monday, Nov. 30 and will continue for the remainder of the semester. Special education students will have the option of attending class in person four days a week.
Currently, secondary students are learning virtually on Mondays, and in-person the rest of the week.
Superintendent James Sebert, citing concerns for the upcoming holiday season, suggested the district move back to its prior model of hybrid learning.
