Ames school board approves switch to hybrid learning

The board approved the 50 percent face-to-face hybrid model beginning Monday, September 21.

AMES, Iowa — The Ames Community School District school board met Thursday night to determine if the district should switch to 50% hybrid instruction next week. 

The Ames district started the first two weeks of the school year online after receiving permission from the Iowa Department of Education due to rising cases of COVID-19 in Story County.

The board approved the 50 percent face-to-face hybrid model beginning Monday, September 21.

According to the district's hybrid learning model, students would attend school on-site for a few days a week and participate in online learning on the days students aren't in the classroom.
