LIVERMORE, CA — The Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District board has advanced a plan to partially reopen schools as soon as Jan. 19, Bay Area News Group reported.

The decision came after nearly 100 parents and students testified at the board's Tuesday meeting, most of whom called for schools to reopen and spoke of the struggles of distance learning, the paper reported.

The possible Jan. 19 reopening date was identified by a LVJUSD reopening task force, comprised of 60 people who have been meeting each week since September, according to the proposal.

While some believed that any time in the classroom was better than none at all, others worried about the disruption that a partial return to school would cause in students' and families' schedules, the task force said.

The task force ultimately put the question to families in a survey sent out over the weekend, Bay Area News Group reported. The task force recommended that a supermajority of 67 percent of families would need to agree on the hybrid learning model in order for LVJUSD to move forward with reopenings, but it's unclear if the board will follow that recommendation.

Parents have until Nov. 13 to communicate their preferences, according to the proposal.

The hybrid model proposal calls for students be divvied into "AM" and "PM" groups, which run from 8 to 10:45 a.m. and 12:15 to 3 p.m., respectively. Smaller groups make it possible for LVJUSD to enforce social distancing; the average classroom can accommodate 12 to 15 students while following distancing requirements.

Class would take place every weekday except Wednesday, when teachers would reserve time for struggling students, according to the proposal.

Parents would still have the option of sticking with distance learning, even if LVJUSD implements the hybrid learning model, according to the proposal.

A hybrid learning model could lead to restructuring of classes, as not all teachers would be medically able to teach in-person.

The task force also raised the possibility of creating learning groups of 15 to 20 students, which would allow students to get academic support and participate in hands-on courses. This could be an option even if LVJUSD proceeds with distance learning for all students, according to the proposal.
