Schools continue remote learning Wednesdays

Mid-Del students will continue with remote learning on Wednesdays through the end of February.
Superintendent Rick Cobb, speaking at last week’s school board meeting, said the district will continue using remote learning on Wednesday through the end of February. Decisions about the future will be made on a month by month basis.
“At this point, we’re not sure about the outlook for the remainder of the school year,” he said. “It’s very possible that we’ll have remote learning for the rest of the school year.”
Cobb said he has received strong feedback in support and opposed to remote learning days. He believes the day provides some relief for teachers who have to take on additional work with implementation of remote and online learning.
“This at least gives teachers a chance to catch a beat in the middle of the week,” Cobb said.
Mid-Del has used Wednesday as remote learning since late September. The district started the year using an alternating A/B schedule and later added the remote learning day. They switched to a four-day in-person schedule in November.
