Osage schools start today with 8% of students learning entirely from home

This week, Osage Community School students are back in classes – that is, until Wednesday. As a part of the district’s ‘Return to Learn’ 80-20 model, students will be in classes 80% of the time – with 20% of the time involving e-learning.

Monday was their first day in classes:


Then on Wednesday, the students will be at home for their first e-learning day of the year. Superintendent of Osage Barb Schwamman says she’s heard murmurs of people believing all classes could be 100% online by late-October or November. Knowing this, these Wednesdays will be crucial.


Schwamman alludes that approximately 8% of Osage students opted for entirely online courses this year – and that, luckily, none of the Osage staff opted out of in-person classes this Fall.
