Frederick County Public Schools will continue to operate under its current hybrid learning model after the Frederick County Board of Education couldn’t agree on whether to increase the number of students in schools or expand the hybrid model to four days a week. The inaction at Wednesday’s board meeting comes after new guidance was issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). That guidance on school reopening states that in elementary schools the distance between students can be safely decreased from six feet to three feet and that the distance in middle and high schools can be decreased if student cohorts and classes do not mix or interact.
