DuBois, PA – DuBois Area School District is making some adjustments to the start of the school year, following along with recommendations from the Department of Health and Department of Education earlier this week.

Because Clearfield County falls into the “moderate” range in the COVID-19 early monitoring system, schools are being recommended to have students either do fully remote learning or a blended learning model.

DuBois School District clarified what that blended hybrid model would look like. The district would be split into what they are calling two teams: Team DuBois (students with last names starting with letters A-K) and Team Beaver (students with last names starting with letters L-Z).

The teams would alternate days for who would come into the school for in-person classes and who would do remote online learning from home.

New technology is also being added to the school. There is a Chromebook available for each student, and students who don’t have access to internet at home can be given a hotspot, which allows them to use phone signals to get online.

Students still also have the option to do a fully remote class schedule from home or to attend the DASD Virtual Academy.

Listen next Thursday, Aug. 20 for Contact on Connect FM, 99.7 and 96.7, starting at 8:35 next Thursday for Joe Taylor’s interview with DuBois Area School District Superintendent Wendy Benton, who will explain everything in detail about how the school will reopen.
