More than 12,000 responses chose the in-person option as the district prepares to resume face-to-face learning at some point during the 2020-21 school year.
The district received 19,253 responses when initial responses were sent to Community Impact Newspaper on July 30. These results do not include change of preferences that could have been turned in up until midnight July 30.
The district announced July 17 it would begin the school year with entirely virtual instruction as a precaution against further spread of the coronavirus. Superintendent Rick McDaniel acknowledged in the July 17 announcement that this decision goes against what many parents submitted as their preferred learning environment for their students. Campuses will not reopen until Sept. 3 at the earliest.
The 38% of district students who were signed up for the fully remote option will be eligible to continue learning from home after campuses reopen. Parents will have opportunities to adjust their preference at the end of the first nine weeks of school.
