Most Wayne County Public Schools will start the new school year with three weeks of strictly remote learning.
In a reversal from its previous decision to start in the hybrid model, the Wayne County Board of Education approved using the Plan “C” virtual learning model for the first three weeks of class for most schools.
School board member Jennifer Strickland made the motion Wednesday, and that motion was approved by a 4 – 2 vote of the Board of Education.
The exceptions will be the Wayne School of Engineering and Wayne Early Middle College High School.
Some administration officials and other school board members were hoping for at least four weeks or more of remote learning before students returned to the classroom.
The instructional schedules for WCPS schools are now as follows:
