EUGENE, Ore. -- With newly released guidelines from the state, many districts are rethinking their plans for fall.
Specific requirements must be met at the county and state level in order for schools to reopen for in-person learning, meaning many will have to start the year in online-only instruction unless conditions change.
Below are the current drafted plans for school districts in our area:
Eugene School District 4J
School will start online, and in-person learning will be delayed for at least four weeks for most students. The district plans for students to return to in-person classes in a hybrid learning environment during the school year.
Bethel School District
While initially planning for a hybrid learning system, under the new state rules, the district now plans to start the year with online-only learning. The district does plan to add in-person instruction at some point during the year.
Springfield Public Schools
All students will begin the year with remote learning. There is a possible exception for students in kindergarten through third grade, officials said.
Corvallis School District
In-person instruction has been delayed for the first six weeks of the school year. This will give families time to plan and "provides predictability during an upredictable time." When in-person classes are deemed safe, schools will offer hybrid learning.
Roseburg Public Schools
Roseburg schools will reopen with comprehensive remote learning this fall, officials said. Prior to the latest guidelines, the district had planned to bring some students back for in-person lessons five days a week.
Greater Albany Public Schools
The school board voted to endorse the district's plan to start the school year in comprehensive at-home learning for all students. The district will be offering interactive at-home learning online through at least Oct. 19 under the plan. Families will be notified by Oct. 5 if they will be extending virtual learning beyond that date.
