The district will start the school year Aug. 3. Schools will let parents opt to choose to attend school in person as before, opt for solely online learning or take part in a flexible program that includes online lessons and occasional in-person lessons.

The full-time distance learning plan is available only to students in fifth grade and up.

In an email sent to parents, the district collected survey results from more than 4,700 parents and guardians, as well as 1,400 employees. The district used the data to come up with the plan.
