On Wednesday, the Anne Arundel County Board of Education adopted a staggered hybrid plan that will send some students back to school in November. The track is optional, so students can continue distance learning if they prefer.
Students in pre-K though second grade can start hybrid classes on Nov. 16. Early Childhood Intervention, a youth special education program, also moves into a hybrid model the same day.
The remaining elementary schoolers can begin hybrid learning on Nov. 30. Teachers will return to the classroom on Nov. 2 to start streaming lessons.
