McCann Technical Adopts Hybrid Model for School Reopening
McCann Technical School students will return to school Wednesday, Sept. 16, in person but only for vocational programming.
iBerkshires.Com Principal Justin Kratz said on Monday that the McCann School Committee last week approved a hybrid learning plan that would have students return to school only for shops.
He said shops would rotate weekly with Grades 9 and 12 in school one week and Grades 10 and 11 the other week.
To meet social distancing requirements, Kratz said the cohorts would be split in half. For example, half of Grade 9 and half of Grade 12 would return to school Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The other half would return to school for shops Tuesday and Thursday.
When not in school during shop week, students will be participating in remote vocational classes.
