LPS to launch new remote-learning program
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Lincoln Public Schools (LPS) will be launching a one-year remote learning program for the 2021-2022 school year.
Considering the uncertainties surrounding COVID-19, school officials wanted to create a fully remote option “intended as a bridge through the remainder of the pandemic.”
Associate Superintendent Dr. Matt Larson says, “we’re essentially opening a new school without a physical presence.”
Hybrid learning or AB Schedules will not be avialble next year. Instead, students will have the option to enroll in in-person learning or the year-long remote program.
Larson says the remote curriculum will not be as comprehensive as the in-person curriculum.
Since its launch Wednesday, the Remote Learning Program has had more than 200 students register.
The deadline to sign up is Friday, Feb. 19.
