A decision on how students will return to school for the start of the 2020-21 school year is expected to be made by the end of the week, according to a July 21 update from Williamson County Schools.
After approving a framework with different scenarios earlier this month, WCS officials will announce if students will be allowed to return to campus for in-person instruction—if they choose that option—or if all students will begin learning virtually.
While students could have the option to choose between in-person or virtual instruction, WCS' framework includes scenarios in which campuses could be closed based on how many active cases of coronavirus are in the county.
Should the number of active cases rise to a medium or high level, campuses could close to most students.
The threshold levels include:
Low spread: Less than 0.5% of active cases, or fewer than 1,192 active cases
Medium spread: Between 0.5%-1% of active cases, or between 1,192-2,384 active cases
High spread: Greater than 1% of active cases, or more than 2,384 active cases
As of July 21, Williamson County was in the medium spread level, however that number changes daily based on data from the county and the Tennessee Department from Health.
According to the framework, in the medium spread scenario, most students would receive instruction remotely, with only small groups of students allowed on-campus.
