GHS Returning to Hybrid/Virtual Learning Nov. 16; Open Enrollment for All Students Begins Oct. 9

The BCSD Board of Education tonight approved the expedited return of GHS students to the hybrid/virtual learning model, thanks to productive collaboration between teachers, administrators, and Board of Education members; along with input from our Technology Department. Once GHS students are re-enrolled (more on that below), those who choose the hybrid model will return to school on November 16. The school will offer a virtual learning option via live streaming as well. Here are the details for GHS’ Hybrid and Virtual Learning plans from November 16 through the second semester: GHS Virtual vs Hybrid Informational Flyer

Why Wait Until November?

The District will begin outfitting every classroom with the new technology/devices in the coming days. Once installed, our teachers will be trained on the new cameras/streaming equipment and software. November 16 was the agreed date between all parties to ensure the complete installation of equipment, and successful training for our teachers.
