BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The Kern High School District has decided to start the 2020-21 school year with a distance learning model that will be re-evaluated on October 23.

The decision is in line with what the Governor set forth in his guidelines for the safe reopening of schools.

If the distance learning model is successful, KHSD plans to move to a hybrid learning model with two potential options or in-person instruction.

Option A would divide students into four cohorts, each accounting for approximately 25% of students, in which each cohort would attend classes on campus once a week and participate in distance learning on the remaining four days.

Option B would divide students into two cohorts, each accounting for approximately 50% of students, in which each cohort would attend classes on campus twice a week and participate in distance learning on the remaining three days.
