The Cincinnati Public Schools Board of Education takes the health and safety of its students and staff seriously and is committed to continuing to use data to guide decision making. At the September 14 school board meeting, board members made the decision to meet again on September 21 to re-examine the health data of the community. Specifically, the board will review whether or not the Labor Day holiday had a negative impact on health data.
During the meeting on September 21, a decision will be made about continuing with distance learning or shifting to a model that includes in-person learning using a phased-in approach beginning September 28. Distance learning will continue for the time being.
Regarding athletics, this week, non-contact sports can return to full competition and contact sports can return to intra-district games. Next week, contact sports can return to full competition. A decision regarding spectators will be forthcoming.
