Administrators in the Central Valley School District said Monday that they hope to resume in-school instruction when classes resume in August.

However, Superintendent Jeremy Brandt said school officials are making preliminary plans for a “hybrid model” of in-school classes and remote learning in case the state Department of Public Instruction doesn’t allow the district to resume normal operations.

“We are planning on traditional education in August but it seems like things keep changing,” Brandt told school board members.

One option being studied is having 50 percent of Central Valley students attend a morning session of classes with the remainder visiting the school in the afternoon.

Brandt said the district had success offering in-person summer school classes to two sections of students following the end of the academic year.

But both sections totaled 12 students who were physically separated to comply with social distancing guidelines prompted by COVID-19, he said.

“That’s much different than putting 200 students in the building,” Brandt added.
