CPS to Return to In-Person Learning Five Days a Week for Spring, Fall

Cincinnati Public Schools' Board of Education voted this evening to return CPS' students to five-day per week in-person learning after spring break, beginning Wednesday, March 31.

Walnut Hills High School will also return to five-days per week in-person and will follow a phased-in approach: students in grades 7-9 returning Wednesday, March 31, and grades 10-12 Tuesday, April 6

Families who prefer five-day per week distance learning may choose to remain at their current school, or enroll in Cincinnati Digital Academy (CDA). Since Walnut Hills High School has been in distance learning the entire year, they will be part of a concurrent learning pilot program, which provides an option for five-day per week distance learning following a student's current schedule. Details on this pilot will be provided to families by the school.

In addition, the school board unanimously decided to return to five days per week in-person for the 2021–2022 academic year, with a concurrent learning option for families who prefer five-day per week distance learning from their current school. Families may also choose to enroll in CDA in the fall.
