Hawaii Schools to Adopt Blended Learning under New Guidance

September 18, 2020

HONOLULU — Hawaii public schools will start combining stay-at-home and in-class instruction during the second school quarter, which starts Oct. 12. The teachers union is vowing to fight the plan announced Thursday.

Most Hawaii schools have been uing distance learning since the start of the school year in August, seeking to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

The new guidelines suggest schools adopt in-person instruction or learning from home depending on the number of positive coronavirus cases on each island over a 14-day period. It provides thresholds that would trigger a reevaluation.

The president of the Hawaii State Teachers Association is calling the plan “dangerous” and says the union will ask the Board of Education to require remote learning at least until Jan. 4.
