BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — UPDATE (8 P.M.) KHSD approved the superintendent to reopen in-class instruction once they get the go-ahead from the state and get into the red tier which may happen Tuesday.

Monday night, the Kern High School District Board of Trustees is scheduled to discuss allowing small groups of students and staff to return to campus for in-person learning starting October 26.

According to the KHSD Board Agenda, the board will vote to approve the Kern High School District's re-opening plan and Superintendent Bryon Schaefer will present the Board of Trustees with information on returning small cohorts of students to school sites for in-person instruction. Superintendent Schaefer will also present the board with information requesting to allow in-person on-campus athletic activity practice in the Kern High School District, according to the agenda.

If students are allowed to return to school sites, they will do so under a hybrid model with students returning to school in person one or two days a week. The rest of the time students would continue distance learning, according to the KHSD reopening plan.

The KHSD Board Meeting begins Monday at 7 p.m. You can watch the live stream here.
