Cincinnati Public Schools Board of Education has determined that all students will return to a full-time distance learning model starting Nov. 23.

The change is currently effective through Jan. 4, when schools might return to a blended learning model. That determination will be made based on public health data.

"This decision was made primarily due to rising COVID-19 cases throughout Greater Cincinnati, which has resulted in staffing challenges across CPS," says a release from CPS. "Like other essential organizations, the higher level of community spread has a direct impact on staff absenteeism. Teachers and staff must stay home when sick, when in quarantine as a result of a close contact, or as needed to take care of family members."
