CARTHAGE, Texas (KTAL/KSHV) — Another East Texas school district has decided to return all students to in-person learning.
According to Carthage Independent School District, the option of At-Home-Learning will be suspended on Monday, Nov. 2.
Earlier this week Carthage ISD officials made the decision due to a decreasing number of students choosing virtual and a low incidence of the coronavirus.
After 10 weeks of instruction, Carthage ISD found that 92 percent of students and their families were choosing traditional face-to-face method of instruction while only 8 percent of students were participating in At-Home-Learning.
Also, after the 10th week of school, the school district found that the incidence of the COVID-19 infection among the students has remained extremely low with an infection rate of only 1 percent.
Carthage ISD will continue to offer At-Home-Learning support only for students who need to be quarantined or isolated due to a positive COVID-19 test or COVID-19 symptoms.
Superintendent John Wink sent this letter to the families in Carthage ISD.
