WHITEFISH BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Students and teachers in Whitefish Bay now have a better idea of how they'll be attending school this fall.
A Whitefish Bay School Board meeting concerning the district's reopening plan went into the early-morning hours Tuesday, Aug. 4. They eventually approved a "blended" model, where students would be split up into two groups and each group would go to school in-person two days a week.

WHITEFISH BAY (CBS 58) -- The Whitefish Bay School Board is meeting to discuss plans for reopening schools this fall.
The community is offering opinions after hearing the recommendation from the administration to start the year in a blended model.
According to documents on the district's website, a blended model would have Cohort A students attending in-person on Monday and Tuesday and Cohort B attending on Thursday and Friday with virtual classes the other days. There would also be a full virtual option for families.
In sharing the data, the administration said a key strength of the blended instructional model is that a family survey indicated that a majority of the community supports in-person or blended instruction.
The meeting started at 7:00 p.m. and can be viewed live here.
