Rock Hill school leaders discuss plans to bring students back to class full time

Currently students are only in classrooms a few days a week. A new proposal lays out plans for a full-time return to in-person learning.

ROCK HILL, S.C. — Tonight the Rock Hill School Board will meet to discuss the a plan to return students back to the classroom full time. 

Currently, Rock Hill Schools remain under a hybrid plan— some students are learning virtually while others are in the classroom. Students rotate in and out of the school buildings throughout the week. 

Under the proposed full- time plan, students will return to the classrooms in the next four weeks.  Pre-K through second grade would return November 9. 3rd through 5th grade would head back November 30.  As of now, there’s no time table laid out for 6th-12th graders to return to classrooms. 

The board will need to vote to finalize the plan. School leaders will discuss the options tonight and hear from parents.
