With Hamilton County still having the highest exposure to COVID-19 in the state, Cincinnati Public Schools are planning a return to face-to-face learning. Carolyn Jones, President of the CPS Board of Directors, was clear in her perspective: “I would support moving towards blended and getting the children back into the buildings,” said Jones. In a comprehensive meeting, the heads of the region’s largest school district said they are aligned but exactly what looks like the 32,000 students and staff will remain in the hands of Superintendent Laura Mitchell, with specific timetables and assessment measures. Maschell referred to a draft proposal that would bring most of the students back to CPS buildings. “Feb. 1, pre-kindergarten through third grade and specialized return. Return of fourth through eighth grades February 15. March 1st would be a return for students in grades 9 through 12, right on time for the start of the fourth quarter. “Some CPS parents, like Roy Jones, believe the plan won’t make the grade” You have to wait for this virus to be more and better under control, “Jones said. Over 300 district students have been diagnosed with COVID-19, according to CPS data. Additionally, according to the district, 472 employees tested positive. With Hamilton County at purple level, the state’s highest infection rate, board member Ryan Messer says the health data is contradicting itself: “We don’t identify any differences in the groups that would imply mandatory home quarantine,” Messer said. While this may or may not be a final exam for that body or district, many questions remain open. “The board agreed to continue to review personal options for Walnut Hills High School and see when it might make sense to return all CPS students full-time face-to-face study later in the school year,” said a dismissal message the district.

In a comprehensive meeting, the leaders of the largest school district in the region say they are aligned in their goals.

But exactly what looks to the 32,000 students and staff will remain in the hands of Superintendent Laura Mitchell, with specific schedules and assessment procedures.

Mitchell referred to a draft proposal that would bring most students back into CPS buildings.

“Feb. 1, pre-kindergarten through third grade and specialized return. Return of fourth through eighth grades February 15. March 1st would be a return for students in grades 9 through 12, right on time for the start of the fourth quarter. “

Some CPS parents, like Roy Jones, believe the plan doesn’t get the grade.

“You have to wait until this virus is more and more under control,” said Jones.

CPS data shows that over 300 district students have been diagnosed with COVID-19. In addition, according to the district, 472 employees tested positive.

With Hamilton County at the purple level, the state’s highest infection rate, board member Ryan Messer says the health data is conflicting.

“We do not find any differences in the groups that would imply a mandatory quarantine at home,” said Messer.

And while this may or may not be a final exam for that body or district, many questions remain unanswered.

“The board agreed to continue to review personal options for Walnut Hills High School and see when it might make sense to return all CPS students full-time face-to-face study later in the school year,” said a dismissal message the district.
