Turns out that the local Education Service Center (ESC) is already running a pilot program in another county district that is expected to form the basis of a come-one, come-all remote learning group model for any district that wants to buy in. I think you can count Mad River in: “When I found out that the ESC was going to do that…it was really a natural fit for us.” Interestingly, we don’t hear from Dayton City Schools (whose supe said outright that fully-remote learning was a disaster for their students) or from Jefferson Township Local Schools (the only district in the state remaining on a fully-remote model for all students for the rest of this school year). We also don’t learn here whether state law will have to change to allow the ESC to actually execute its plan for next fall. (Dayton Daily News, 4/17/21)
