COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--The Columbus City School District is delaying the start of the hybrid learning model for grades preK-8.
Superintendent Dr. Talisa Dixon says administrators are taking the extra time for orientation, and to continue to work out transportation issues, along with work out deals with the district's union partners.
Originally, the plan was to have students in the classroom two days per week, beginning October 19th. Now, the plan is to have grades preK-5 return on November 2nd. Grades 6-8 will return on November 9th.
Under the transportation plan, buses will carry a maximum 21 students, or 1 per seat, instead of the maximum 60.
High school students, in grades 9-12, will remain in an all-online model according to the district's plan.
