SANTA ANA (CBSLA) – When the fall term begins next month, students in the Santa Ana Unified School District will be able to choose whether they would like to learn solely online, or under a hybrid model.
The SAUSD board Tuesday approved a plan to create a Virtual Academy for students who would rather not come to campus at all, but meet with their teachers entirely online four days a week.READ MORE: Mandatory Evacuations Remain In Place for 1,000 People Due To Pacific Palisades Brush Fire
Under the hybrid model, students would attend classes on campus one or two days a week, and meet online the rest of the time.
Under the hybrid plan for elementary schools, students would be divided into two cohorts. Half the students would attend in-person classes on Mondays and Tuesdays, while the other half would attend on Thursdays and Fridays. Wednesdays would be reserved for teacher professional days.
Under the hybrid plan for secondary schools, students would be placed in one of four cohorts. Each cohort would meet on campus one day per week, with Wednesday reserved as a teacher professional day.
No more than 15 students would be in a class at one time.READ MORE: 3 More Freeway Shootings Unfold On 91 Freeway In OC
