West Delaware High School returns to in-person everyday learning today.
The school moved to hybrid learning just a few weeks into the new school year last September due to the increase in COVID-19 cases throughout Delaware County. Students whose last names began with the first half of the alphabet would attend school in-person one day, while the other half learned online. The next day, they’d switch. That continued all the way through the first semester, which ended yesterday. So today, Superintendent Dr. Kristen Rickey says they’re back to normal.
And tentative plans have been made for next school year’s calendar. A public hearing on the 2021-2022 school calendar will be held at next month’s meeting – you can check it out on West Delaware website and make comments on it as well.
And at Monday night’s West Delaware School Board meeting, the board gave the go-ahead for a $20 million bond election for facility improvements. The election is planned for March.
Rickey says the board is also looking into solar options for facilities in the district.
