There’s a new plan in the works for South Bend Community Schools students.
Dr. Todd Cummings, Superintendent for the South Bend Community School Corporation, proposed Monday that all students begin the 2020-2021 school year with virtual learning. This would stretch from August 12th through the 28th.
At the end of August, students choosing to return to in-person learning will be gradually phased back into school buildings.
ABC 57 News reports a counter-proposal was also introduced at Monday’s virtual work session by the South Bend National Education Association, which called to extend the eLearning period to a total of nine weeks.
The original plan was to have students physically back in classrooms on September 1.
