In-Person Learning Focus Of HR Schools Forum

Hood River County School District Superintendent Rich Polkinghorn and County Health Officer Dr. Christopher Van Tilburg conducted an on-line forum Monday night to present information and answer questions about safety plans for reopening schools.  Polkinghorn says he recognizes the anxiety people feel about going back into classrooms at some point, particularly with increasing rates of COVID-19.  But he also notes while comprehensive distance learning works well for some families, for others it has been difficult, so the district now plans to focus on in-person learning for students who are struggling.  Polkinghorn says students experiencing Internet connectivity issues and needing to complete federally-mandated assessments that can only be done in person are their first priority for in-person learning, followed by students in the district they have identified as struggling.
