LAKEWOOD, Ohio (WOIO) - In an emergency meeting held Wednesday night, Lakewood City Schools Board of Education outlined three learning plan options for the remainder of the semester.
The board approved an amendment to the Memorandum of Understanding between the Board of Education and the Lakewood Teachers Association (LTA).
The modified agreement allows for the return of in-person learning prior to the end of the semester and permits the district to make changes to the instruction plans as needed.
Superintendent Dr. Michael Barnes sent Lakewood families a letter detailing these three options:
Option #1 – In-person instruction (date to be determined)
Option #2 – Remote instruction (with current teacher for remainder of semester)
Option #3 – eLearning LKWD (students currently in this model will remain for the rest of the first semester)
The district will decide on a date to return to in-person instruction after reviewing the latest information from healthcare experts and relevant COVID-19 data.
The Lakewood Teachers Association released this statement following the emergency meeting:
