Students who select this learning mode will participate in learning in-person at the home school as the district gating criteria allows. Students in special education programs will continue to work with their case managers to determine the best programming choices for their specific needs. This learning mode can include three types of experiences--full in-person learning, hybrid learning or distance learning.
