School District of Philadelphia to reopen hybrid learning option for some families; 35 more schools to reopen

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The School District of Philadelphia said the families of some students who are all-virtual will soon have the option to switch to hybrid learning.

Families of Pre-K to 2nd-grade students who selected the 100% digital learning model last fall will have a one-week window to make a change.

The window to complete the Learning Model Selection Survey opens on Tuesday, March 16 and closes on Tuesday, March 23.

Families who choose hybrid will be contacted by their child's school between March 24 and 26, and their hybrid schedule will start April 5.

"Students whose families do not complete the survey will remain in 100% digital learning. As always, families choosing the hybrid learning for their child can return to 100% digital learning at any time," the district said.
