At today’s Re-open Leon Schools task force meeting, Superintendent Rocky Hanna announced that he plans to recommend to the School Board to further delay the first day of school from Wednesday, August 19 to Monday, August 24.
He said he wants to allow teachers two weeks to prepare for the first day of school. According to the current plan, teachers would come back to school on August 10 to begin preparing for students.
Hanna said the start date can be pushed back further, but the last day of school will also be pushed back.
He also outlined some points of the district’s reopening plan, including reducing the density of all K-12 classes and moving from five periods to three periods.
“Social distancing’s going to be very important,” he noted.
Hanna said he will present the finalized reopening plan at the July 28 School Board meeting.
