Philadelphia students to start year online under new plan

Pennsylvania

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The School District of Philadelphia is switching gears to keep all public school students in online classes after a previous plan to return students to class two days a week drew fears and criticism from parents, teachers and administrators.

The district announced its revised plan for students Tuesday, which calls for online-only instruction at least through the first marking period that ends in mid-November. The district will hold a public forum on the revised plan Thursday when the school board is expected to vote.

The new plan would switch to a hybrid model of in-person and remote learning after Nov. 17, officials said.
