ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Rochester City School District Superintendent Dr. Lesli Myers-Small unveiled steps two and three of the RCSD’s plan to get students back in school in a hybrid learning model.

During a meeting Thursday night, the School Board approved the plan four to two.

Phase one was announced previously, with students in specialized programs being allowed to go back to school for hybrid learning on Jan. 4.

Phase two will happen in the third quarter, when students in Pre-K-6th grade will go hybrid at their home school, with students in grades 7 through 12 remaining at home.

Phase three will also happen in the third quarter with students in grades 7-12 switching to a hybrid model at their home school.

The third quarter will begin in February, but a specific date has not been set yet.

Myers-Small told News10NBC she appreciated that a majority of the school board supported the phased-in plan moving forward. 

"Our goal is to first and foremost determine how many students are interested in coming back so their parents will make that decision for them, and that really sets the tone for moving forward with all of those other areas that I said in the decision making factors," Myers-Small said.

Families who want to can choose to keep their students in the 100% remote learning model. The district will send parents a survey asking them for their decision.
