BPS Considering Hybrid Approach For Students In The Fall

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Boston Public Schools are closer to finalizing a plan for how to teach students in the fall amid the coronavirus pandemic.

After a discussion at a virtual meeting last night, the Boston School Committee is leaning toward a hybrid between in-class and remote learning for students.

Student groups may alternate time in the classroom every two days. And when not at physically at school, they would learn remotely from home.

However, students in smaller, special education classes may come in four or five days a week.

Earlier this week, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said that fully reopening schools is unlikely.

"All students in buildings, I think that would probably be a stretch at this point to start school with everyone in school," Walsh said.

Boston school officials are also considering social distancing measures and face mask requirements.
