Claiborne Co. School District to reopen with hybrid and distance learning only schedules
Local and federal officials are debating how to safely reopen schools during the COVID-19 pandemic.

JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - The Claiborne County School District plans to reopen this fall with both a hybrid and distance learning schedule for the 2020-2021 school year. The new scheduling efforts will help to reduce the amount of students in each classroom.

With the hybrid schedule, students will receive instruction through a combination of face-to-face instruction and distance learning.

Students will be physically present at school two days per week and receive distance learning three days per week. On the days that students are physically present, they will observe strict safety procedures.

Students will be divided into two cohorts at each school. While Cohort A is physically present in the building, Cohort B will complete distance learning. While Cohort B is physically present in the building, Cohort A will complete distance learning.

With the distance learning only schedule, students will receive instruction five (5) days a week via a combination of learning packets, projects and/or online learning platform while working at home.
