Board Approves Earlier In-Person Start Date For High School Students

Indian River School District

The Indian River Board of Education has approved a revised hybrid learning schedule that will allow students in Grades 9-12 to begin receiving in-person instruction at their high schools earlier than what was previously planned.

Under the revised schedule, hybrid students in Grade 9 will begin receiving in-person instruction at their high schools the week of October 26. Students in Grades 10-12 will begin receiving in-person instruction the week of November 9. High school students will be divided into two cohorts and attend school in person two days a week. Students in Cohort A will attend school in person on Monday and Tuesday and learn remotely the remaining three days. Students in Cohort B will learn remotely Monday through Wednesday and attend school on Thursday and Friday.
