AMES, Iowa — The Ames School Board voted to delay 100 percent face-to-face learning for grades preschool through 5th grade until Nov. 23. 

According to the district, that date is dependent upon local COVID-19 data, but it is not clear what specific data would prevent the students from returning on that date. 

Hybrid-learning options will continue until students can return 100 percent in-person.
