Youngstown City School Reopening News

All YCSD scholars will have the option to return to in-person instruction next month

YOUNGSTOWN -- All Youngstown City School District scholars will have the option of returning to in-person instruction, beginning the week of March 15.

Pre-kindergarten through fifth-graders will return Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning March 16.

All scholars at Rayen Early College Middle School, regardless of grade level, will return to in-person instruction Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning March 16.

Sixth through 12th-graders will return Mondays and Fridays, beginning March 15.

Families still have the option to continue with remote instruction full time.

CEO Justin Jennings said he remains mindful of guidance from the Centers for Disease Control.

“After talking to other school officials from across the state, I believe that if we follow all of the mask and social-distancing requirements, we’ll be able to open all of our school buildings and still keep scholars and staff safe,” he said. ‘We will continue to monitor the virus situation and make adjustments if required.”

Wednesdays will be reserved for educator office hours, professional development, and deep building cleaning.

The school district will still have weekly food distribution on Wednesdays.

Remote instruction will continue for all scholars on the days in-person instruction isn’t occurring.

Surveys are being sent out to families to allow them to indicate their preferences for in-person or fully remote instruction.

Parents/guardians will not be permitted in the school buildings.

Transportation has been a concern because of the number of YCSD buses, social distancing guidelines, and the requirement to transport scholars from private and community/charter schools. Depending on the number of scholars who plan to return to buildings, the district may need to contract with an outside provider to transport some scholars.

All scholars and staff will be required to wear masks. Desk shields are being installed in classrooms and floors and seating areas will be marked to ensure social distancing.
