The Salem-Keizer school district announced Tuesday evening that it is extending online learning for grades four through 12 at least through Feb. 1.
Salem-Keizer Public Schools says it will continue to monitor state and county coronavirus case metrics with a goal to transition kindergarten through 3rd grade students to a hybrid online and in-person model.
“The health and safety of students and staff have to be our greatest concern, which is why we have chosen to extend comprehensive distance learning,” Superintendent Christy Perry said in a statement. “We are committed to providing a quality online learning environment for all our students and have staff dedicated to family outreach during this time.”
Students will remain in their elected learning models, either Comprehensive Distance Learning or the district’s online education program – Enhanced Digital and Guided Education (EDGE), through Feb. 1.
Families will be able to submit a request if they would like to transfer students between programs Nov. 9 through Dec. 4.
