WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) — Williamsville Central School District has announced its new “Williamsville Relaunch Plan.”
Acting Superintendent Dr. John McKenna says this is the district’s solution to solve the ongoing reopening problems. Two weeks ago district leaders had announced students in grades five through twelve would be completely virtual.
This “relaunch plan” will bring the hybrid learners back into the classroom two days a week with the teachers deciding how they will instruct students in class and those at home.
“A learning model who engages students who are learning in person and remotely during the same class period, both synchronously and asynchronously,” explained McKenna in a video message.
On Wednesday morning, the district announced that it will begin a three-part phase-in process for students participating in hybrid learning on October 13.
That day, students in grades five and six will return. Grades seven and eight will follow on October 19 and students in grades nine through 12 will be back on October 26.
