Charles City school board approves plan for return to in-person learning

The Charles City school board has approved the phased ‘return to in-person learning’ plan for the middle school and the high school. Superintendent Mike Fisher says after talking to his team and teachers, he was confident in the plan.


So, here is the full plan:

  • 6th grade – all students 5 days per week beginning October 19
  • 7th grade – all students 5 days per week beginning October 27
  • 8th grade – all students 5 days per week beginning November 2
  • 9-10th grade –  all students 4 days per week beginning October 27 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday
  • 11-12th grade – all students 3 days per week beginning October 27 Monday, Wednesday, and Friday

Basically, the high schoolers will be the only school left in the district not returning to 5 days a week. According to a release by the district, this is due to the, “…physical constraints of the spaces in our high school classrooms, class sizes, and an older, less effective heating and airflow system.”

Student Board Member Cael Ruzicka asked the board if they would be continuing their ‘School to You’ program which is the district’s online schooling alternative:


Charles City schools will stay in on-site learning as long as, “…community transmission in Floyd County stays low to moderate, and school absenteeism stays at a low to moderate rate, we can safely remain in on-site learning. If either of these metrics rises above 10% for more than three days, we may transition back into hybrid.”
