The district will either announce that all students will be allowed to return to campus for in-person instruction or that the district will continue with its hybrid plan, which will see some students on campus but most still at home.
Williamson County Schools and Franklin Special School District began the school year full-time Aug. 10 with "medium spread" protocol: Students in grades 3-12 participate in remote learning, and students from early education programs through second grade are allowed to return to campus.
The "low spread" protocol would allow all students the choice to return to campus, while the "high spread" protocol would have all students learn remotely.
Should the district allow all students the option to return to school, students who picked the virtual learning option before the start of the school year will be allowed to continue school remotely.
Superintendent Jason Golden said Aug. 7 the district will alert parents via the school's notification system.
Golden said the district expects to have decisions on protocol stay in effect for at least two weeks at a time to give parents some consistency and allow them to plan ahead.
FSSD has not yet made an announcement as to whether it will move to a different protocol in the coming weeks.
