The Hancock County School District has released a three-part School Reopening Plan for the 2020-2021 school year.
The three-part plan encompasses three different learning blueprints, a Traditional Schedule, a Hybrid Schedule and a Distance Learning Schedule.
The plan takes into consideration the recommendations and guidelines of the Center for Disease Control, the Mississippi Department of Health, and the Mississippi Department of Education (MDE).
Superintendent Alan Dedeaux stated, “Safety is our first and foremost concern of all those involved – our students, their families, faculty, staff, bus drivers, cafeteria workers and community.”
At this time, the district plans to follow the Traditional Schedule with all students returning to school on August 6th. For parents with medically fragile children, the option of distance learning will be available. The plan is subject to change as any new guidelines are received from the governor, Mississippi Department of Health and MDE.
“Our hope is that no matter what we may face ahead, teaching and learning will continue, it just may look a little different from what our normal has been”, Dedeaux shared.
