GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Grand Island Public Schools held a Town Hall meeting for the public Wednesday night, and one of the big storylines coming out of it is that the district is making virtual school plans for the 2021-22 academic year.

Unlike the 3-4 sections of virtual school GIPS currently has for its elementary grades, they will be likely reducing down to just one section for each grade in an effort to keep class size similar across both virtual and in-person options. To accommodate this, GIPS is asking its teachers to apply if they are interested in being a virtual teacher.

In the immediate, the one section of virtual school would be for grades K-5 only. For both middle school and high school, GIPS is actively seeking comment from parents and students on what the virtual experience can look like for those grade levels.
