BELOIT (WKOW) -- Students in Beloit will be learning from home to begin the school year due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to the School District of Beloit.
The school board voted to have virtual/distance learning for the first quarter, ending Oct. 30, 2020.
Interim Superintendent Dr. Dan Keyser proposed a model to the board Tuesday night that would have offered families two options, virtual or in-person learning.
It was later decided the start of the 2020/2021 school year would be held virtually and reconsidered after the first quarter.
Classes start Sept. 8, giving more time to prepare for technology training for teachers, students and parents.
