AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - In Tuesday night’s board meetings, two school districts in the CSRA revised schedules for students to head back for in-person learning.
The Columbia County School District approved, unanimously, a revised schedule, for student learning.
For middle schoolers:
All sixth grade A/B students return to five days a week on Oct. 19.
All seventh grade A/B students return to five days a week on Oct. 26.
All eighth grade A/B students return to five days a week on Nov. 2.
For high schoolers:
For the week of Oct. 19, Group B return on Monday and Wednesday. Group A will return on Tuesday and Thursday.
For the week of Oct. 26, Group A will learn on Monday and Wednesday. Group B will learn on Tuesday and Thursday.
Any student with a grade average of C or below must attend on Friday. Students in both groups choose to attend on Friday.
There are seven weeks left in this semester. If COVID-19 rates remain low under this revised schedule, the district could consider going to five-day, face-to-face instruction in the second semester.
In a 6-1 vote, Edgefield County school board members voted for four days of in-person learning for kindergarten through eighth grade and three days of in-person learning for grades 9-12.
