Sussex Technical High School offering students hybrid-learning option in February

SUSSEX COUNTY, Del. — The Sussex County Vocational Technical School District Board of Education recently voted to begin a hybrid-learning for Sussex Technical High School students starting February 1st.

School officials announced Tuesday that students will have the option of attending school in-person for a portion of the week, or attending fully remotely. The school district’s superintendent, Kevin Carson, Ed.D. says that students learn best in-person, and wanted to offer families an option that best suits their individual needs. Carson says in part quote, “Our staff has done an incredible job guiding students through this pandemic with our modified remote plan, and it’s time to move to the next level by giving our families a choice.”

We’re told Sussex Tech students who choose to attend in-person will be on campus two days a week and learn remotely two days a week. Students choosing to learn fully remote will have the same access to instruction as students who are on campus via live video classes. On Fridays, teachers can choose to bring students on campus for optional in-person instruction, such as hands-on work in technical classes.

The District says they will continue using current COVID-19 protocols, including regular cleaning and disinfection of high-contact surfaces. The school district adds that students in classrooms will be properly distanced, and all individuals on campus will be required to wear face coverings at all times except meals.
