MA education officials prepared to take hybrid, remote learning off the table

By: | February 24, 2021

Education officials in Massachusetts are working on a plan to go back to a more traditional school model, focusing on elementary students in particular.

Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Commissioner Jeffrey Riley said he would take a phased approach to that process, working with medical experts. Elementary students would be brought back first, ideally learning in person five days a week this April, Riley said, with a plan for middle and possibly high school students later this school year.

Riley told members of the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education that in a week or two he planned to ask the board to authorize him to determine how best to go back to traditional schooling and break away from methods of remote and hybrid learning that have been relied on during the COVID-19 pandemic.
