Update: Cincinnati Public Schools on Monday night unveiled five potential plans for the 2020-’21 school year, but board of education president Carolyn Jones acknowledged no one was ready to make a decision yet.


CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Public Schools board will deliberate on a series of four options regarding how to reopen schools in the fall amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The board will meet at 6:30 p.m. Monday via Zoom. Community members and parents can join the meeting and will have the option to speak and ask questions.

Options for school in the fall include:

  • In-person learning five days a week
  • In-person learning one to two days a week (with the rest remote)
  • In-person learning one to two days a month (with the rest remote)
  • Remote learning

About 71% of parents are concerned remote learning will have long-term effects, according to a survey conducted by the district.

District officials say they’re considering safety protocols which include face coverings for all students and staff, limiting visitors, staggering arrivals and departures and serving meals in classrooms to help with social distancing.
