EBR schools will let students choose between all-virtual, hybrid learning models when classes return in August
EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH - The East Baton Rouge School System will allow its student to either take classes entirely from home or to attend class in-person twice a week during the upcoming school year.
The blueprint shared by the school system Thursday says students will be allowed to choose between a hybrid learning model and an all-virtual learning model.
Students opting to return through the hybrid model will return to schools for a full-day orientation in alphabetically divided groups on Aug. 6 and 7. Starting on August 10, students will begin the full hybrid schedules in grades Pre-K-12, attending as part of set alphabet groups.
Students in A-K groups will attend on Mondays and Tuesdays, and will learn virtually Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. L-Z groups will attend in person on Thursdays and Fridays, and will learn virtually Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. All students will learn virtually on Wednesdays while schools undergo extensive cleaning.
