FRAMINGHAM – Keefe Technical High School will have students go from remote learning to a hybrid model starting on February 1.
“Beginning February 1, we are offering families the opportunity to have their students return for a portion of their career and technical instruction. Our Hybrid model, which we have referred to as a 25 percent CTE Hybrid, is designed to allow one grade in per week for career and tech (or shop) instruction. Over the course of the four weeks of school between February 1 and March 5, each grade will have the opportunity to come in full time for one week in their program,” announced Superintendent Jonathan Evans.
The in-person schedule will be:
- February 1-5 – Grade 11
- February 8-12 – Grade 10
- February 15-19 – Winter Vacation
- February 22-26 – Grade 9
- March 1-5 – Grade 12
“It is our expectation that by the end of the first four week cycle of this model, we will be in a position to decide on our plans to increase the number of students in the building going forward,” said the regional school district.
“While this plan, like all others, is not perfect, we believe that it is our best and safest path forward to incrementally return to in-person learning. Please be assured that we will be prepared to implement all of the procedures we have been planning since last year for the safety of our school community,” said the school district which has students from Ashland, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton, and Natick.
A virtual meeting for families to discuss the plan was held ion Thursday, January 21.
“We appreciate your patience and effort in the remote learning program we have implemented during the first half of the school year. We have been successfully serving small cohorts of our highest needs students since November,” said the District.
