Delaware Officials Urge Schools to Resume Hybrid Learning


January 7, 2021

DOVER, Del. (AP) — Democratic Gov. John Carney is urging Delaware public school officials to resume hybrid instruction mixing both remote and in-person learning next week after recommending last month that classroom instruction be put on hold because of the coronavirus.

Carney, joined by Director of Public Health Dr. Karyl Rattay and Education Secretary Susan Bunting, sent an open letter to school leaders, teachers and parents urging the resumption of hybrid instruction starting next Monday.

The letter comes just over a month after Carney recommended that schools temporarily cease in-person instruction of students from Dec. 14 to Jan. 8 and resume hybrid learning on Jan. 11. Winter sports competitions were also prohibited during that same period. That decision came just days after Carney continued to maintain that schools were “safe places” and should continue using a hybrid approach of in-person and virtual classroom instruction.
