Fairfield School District approves hybrid model for reopening plan

Fairfield School District officials hold public meeting to discuss reopening plans

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The Fairfield School District board approved a hybrid model for their reopening plan.

Classes will begin on Monday, Aug. 24.

The model is a blend of traditional instruction and at-home learning. Students with last names A-K will attend school Mondays and Tuesdays, students with last names L-Z, Thursdays and Fridays.

When students are not in school, they will have assignments to work on at home.

Parents who signed their child(ren) up for virtual learning will have the option of moving to the hybrid model.

For families who now want virtual learning, the deadline is extended to Aug. 3.

All students in grades 6-12 will receive a laptop.

Superintendent of Fairfield City Schools Billy Smith said he couldn’t make a recommendation that would result in everyone being satisfied.

He says the district really wants to return to a face-to-face model and is hoping the hybrid model will get them there.
