HAMDEN — While most learning has gone remote under a plan the Hamden Board of Education approved earlier this month, Superintendent of Schools Jody Goeler said certain specialized programs will be able to continue under the hybrid model.
Programs that will incorporate in-person learning include the pre-K special education program at the Alice Peck Learning Center and several intensive support programs in grades K-8, according to Goeler.
“The decision to provide in-building services was based both on student need and availability of appropriately trained and certified staff,” he said in a message to a reporter Monday. “The availability of staff may impact our ability to continue these programs, and perhaps expand other services, through the duration of the closure.”
With the switch to remote learning effective Nov. 23, most students will not resume in-person classes until at least Jan. 19, 2021.
