Wauwatosa school board votes on plans to reopen school this fall

Updated: 5:35 a.m. on Tuesday, July 28

WAUWATOSA (CBS 58) -- The Wauwatosa School Board voted 6-1 overnight to move forward with its reopening plan.

The plan calls for two options for families, strict virtual learning or phased-in learning.

Phase one focuses on staff orientation, phase two is to get students comfortable with the learning environment and would have staff and student cohorts attending, phase three would be for the first week of school and would be a hybrid model, and phase four would be ongoing learning with options for virtual learning, hybrid learning, or classroom learning, depending on metrics.

The district would use metrics determined by a health advisory panel to make decisions on when and how to move forward with each phase.

WAUWATOSA (CBS 58) -- The Wauwatosa School Board is meeting Monday night to discuss plans to reopen school. 

The meeting went past 11:00 p.m. with the public offering feedback about the plan that was presented Monday. 

The plan offers a virtual learning or phased learning option for families. Phase one focuses on staff orientation, phase two is to get students comfortable with the learning environment and would have staff and student cohorts attending, phase three would be for the first week of school and would be a hybrid model, and phase four would be ongoing learning with options for virtual learning, hybrid learning, or classroom learning, depending on metrics.

The district would use metrics determined by a health advisory panel to make decisions on when and how to move forward with each phase. 

For example, in phase three, if the metrics meet the standards determined by the medical/public health advisory panel for the hybrid model learning, then staff and students will follow the hybrid model. If the metrics are not met, staff and students will continue virtual learning. 

Many parents expressed concerns that they didn't have clear information on what those metrics are and said they would not be able to make informed choices without those metrics.
