The Howard County Public School System will not further reopen schools this academic year, Superintendent Michael Martirano said during the school board’s meeting last week. However, starting this week, the district’s 77 schools are working to increase in-person participation in the hybrid learning model. While still following the current model and health guidelines, the system will invite more students to its five-day-a-week program and reach out to families who originally chose to keep their children in virtual learning to see if they’re interested in switching to hybrid.
