In an epic School Committee meeting that began on Wednesday evening and ended in the very earliest hours of Thursday, members voted unanimously to support the following motion:
Moved that the Bedford School Committee approve the fully in-person, hybrid and fully remote learning plans as presented, and that the district begins the 2020-2021 school year using the hybrid model.
Furthermore, should the hybrid or fully in-person model be implemented, families will have the option to go all remote if they so choose, and that between now and the opening of schools, the Reopening Task Forces and the Bedford Educator Association will continue to work on the operational details for each model.
The Citizen’s coverage is being compiled and will post as soon as it’s ready.
In the meanwhile, you are invited to watch last night’s meeting thanks to Bedford TV.
