Superintendent will recommend transitions to hybrid learning

At a regular meeting of the Vancouver Public Schools board of directors on Tuesday, Jan. 12, Superintendent Steve Webb will propose transition dates for deliberation and discussion to provide more VPS students with in-person instruction.

The superintendent’s recommendation is consistent with new guidelines issued last month by Washington Governor Jay Inslee and the Washington Department of Health. It also is similar to plans announced recently by other Clark County school districts including the county’s largest district, Evergreen Public Schools.

VPS already is serving kindergarten and at-risk students in small groups with a combination of remote and in-person instruction. The district is following all health and safety guidelines.

Families will continue to have the option to keep their children in full remote learning.
