In-person learning to continue in Re-8 district

Posted

The Weld Re-8 School District board of education voted unanimously to continue remote learning in the district until at least Monday, Jan. 11.        

The vote came at the end of a marathon school board workshop/business meeting that finished at 12:40 a.m. Dec. 11.        

Starting Jan. 11, the district hopes pre-kindergarteners through fifth-graders will be doing in-person learning, while sixth- through 12th-graders will be doing hybrid learning.        

The decision also brings teachers back to work Monday, Jan. 4, to prepare for the learning models that begin the following week.        

There was no discussion following the executive session. 

Remote work paid

The school board also approved a one-time, $500 payment to district employees as reimbursement for costs while they’ve been working remotely.

The vote was 4-1. Board member Cody LeBlanc dissented. There was no board discussion on this issue either.       

The money comes from the district’s Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act. 

RE-8 Superintendent Alan Kaylor said the $500 was for reimbursement of costs “incurred while working remotely.”
