After virus influx, Charles City schools to decide whether to send 7-12 graders back to hybrid model

The Charles City School District is now contemplating whether or not to transition grades 7 through 12 back to hybrid learning. This is after a trend started to appear in the numbers this week.

Specifically, a trend in the 14-day average:

    Monday – 10.5%

    Tuesday – 11.5%

    Wednesday – 12.8%

And the school’s COVID Dashboard shows that currently there are between 3-15 students/staff with the virus split between the campuses. 

So according to a release by the school:

“Because of this trend, there is a special board of education meeting scheduled for Thursday, November 5 at 5 P.M. The superintendent’s recommendation to the board will be “to transition grades 7-12 to hybrid learning on Tuesday, November 10 through Tuesday November 24 per the adopted decision matrix.””

Back In October, the school passed a matrix clarifying the parameters for transitioning in and out of hybrid learning. When the rolling average is above 10% for three days or more, they begin the procedure to transition back to hybrid learning for two weeks.
