FWCS outlines changes for students through end of semester

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - After implementing at-home learning for all students each Wednesday -- to allow for teacher training -- Fort Wayne Community Schools has laid out plans to bring students back to campus five days a week.

In a letter to parents, Superintendent Mark Daniel detailed what will happen.

Elementary school students who are taking traditional classes will resume Wednesday lessons in the classroom on Oct. 7, but will report to school on a two-hour delay.

The late start will continue to allow for teacher training and will be in place through the end of the semester. It applies to Wednesdays only.

For middle and high school students, "remote learning Wednesday" stays in effect through mid-October.

They will return to the classroom on Wednesdays on Oct. 21. A two-hour delay will be in effect for them, as well, each Wednesday through the remainder of the semester.

Daniel said the time set aside for teacher training has proven to be valuable as educators adjust to demands that include teaching students through eLearning.
