What will the new education model look like?

In just more than a month, a new school year will begin for students in DeKalb County School District (DCSD) and City Schools of Decatur (CSD). Neither district has yet to finalize how students will be taught, but both have narrowed the possible scenarios to three options.

DCSD is gathering public input on whether traditional, hybrid and/or remote learning models that comply with the social/physical distancing guidelines are preferred while City Schools of Decatur officials consider the options of in-person every day, in-person every other day, or fully online options for students in that district.

As our county, state and nation continue to battle the spread of COVID-19, many parents and guardians will likely continue working from home and fear the possibility of community spread of the virus among students, faculty and staff with in-person instruction models.

No matter what option or options each district decides to ultimately offer, there is little doubt that the beginning of a new school year will bring anxiety and health concerns to the forefronts of many minds.

We encourage all parents, guardians, and school staff to follow guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help curtail the spread of coronavirus as we begin the 2020-2021 school year.
