DUBUQUE, Iowa. (KWWL) ----- Board members discussed the future of learning after COVID-19 compelled their use of the hybrid learning model.
The Board of Education asked for public input during Monday's meeting to help inform future decision-making.
For now, the Board decided they will keep things as they are with the hybrid learning model in-place. Gov. Kim Reynolds is expected to touch on Iowa education during her address Tuesday evening.
Some parents were unhappy with what hybrid model offers, urging major changes. Some joined multiple teachers: asking those unhappy with the hybrid model to hang on.
"There may or may not be action taken at the meeting regarding next steps, however it is important that the conversation occurs," Superintendent Stan Rhenigans said in a statement. "There are many perspectives and opinions regarding when to move back to fully in-person learning and as we look into the future, it is important for us to have these discussions so that we can take the many considerations before us into account and be fully prepared for a move whenever it is possible."
