Local News

BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (WDTN) — Greene County was increased to a Level 3 public health emergency Thursday, causing Beavercreek City Schools to change it’s in-person learning plan.

The school district announced Thursday night it will move to a blended learning model starting Monday, October 19th. The school says it anticipates to remain in that model for at least two weeks.

“We would not be doing this if we didn’t feel this was the best course of action, we wouldn’t be doing this if we didn’t think it was the safest course of action for our kids,” Beavercreek Public Relations Specialist Ryan Gilding said.

This means students who are currently attending in-person classes will only attend two days per week based on the first letter of their last name:

  • Students with the last name A-K will attend Monday and Wednesday
  • Students with the last name L-Z will attend Tuesday and Thursday
  • On the days that students are not scheduled to attend school will be remote learning days

During remote learning, students will receive instruction through Google Classroom.

“We’re going to get our kids back in the classroom as soon as it’s safe to do so and as soon as the governor takes us out of red,” Gilding said.

Beavercreek says transportation services and extracurricular activities will continue as scheduled.

There will also be no change to students who are currently learning virtually.
