Kaukauna Area School Board meeting





KAUKAUNA — The Kaukauna Area School District Board of Education on Monday approved a plan to increase the number of days that students in grades 5-12 would attend school in person.



KAUKAUNA — The Kaukauna school board on Monday will discuss a plan to have students in grades 5-12 return to in-person learning four days a week.

The board will discuss the proposal during a meeting at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will be livestreamed HERE.

Currently, students in grades 4K-4 have five-day-per-week, face-to-face learning environments.

Grades 5-12 are currently in a blended model, which will include face-to-face instruction for two days per week, and virtual instruction for three days per week.

All students have the option to learn fully virtual.

The proposal to be unveiled Monday night recommends that River View Middle School and Kaukauna High
School transition to the 4-1 Modified Hybrid Model, which includes four days in person and one day virtual.

The change could take place beginning of Trimester 3 on March 8, 2021, with the continuance of an all-virtual option for those who so choose and with the continuance of late-start All-Virtual Wednesdays.

The board could vote on the plan at its Monday meeting, or postpone a vote to a later date.
