In an effort to move toward better communication between district administration and PPS families, Superintendent Bielang sent out an email to the school community outlining changes to move forward.
“We want to let you know that we are taking steps to listen more prior to the implementation of any 6-12 hybrid model of instruction,” it states. “We still have work to do to answer the key questions about instructional delivery, cleaning, lunch, class changes, etc.”.
The email goes on to further explain a survey sent out on Sept. 25 in which families will be able to state their preference of a hybrid or virtual model. Bielang states that there are strong opinions on all sides when it comes to returning to school and highlights that administration “is working to make decisions that are best for students. . .We also recognize there is not a one size fits all solution. Any changes in the way we deliver your student’s instruction while we are in Phase 4 will be presented to the School Board for approval.”
