Madill Public Schools pushing back start date
MADILL, Okla. (KXII) - Madill Public Schools is pushing back the start date for the upcoming school year.
Students at Madill schools will now head back to class on August 20.
The district says they moved the start date due to the drastic change to education during the pandemic.
School officials say the extra week will give staff more time to become comfortable with the new safety procedures and the new learning management system.
The district also says delaying the start date will allow them to monitor the number of positive cases and the level of community spread.
In June, the district announced they will have three options for classroom setting including in-person classes, virtual classes and hybrid classes.
