Henderson County Schools Superintendent Bob Lawson said Tuesday that the district would maintain its current schedule for the remainder of the 2021 school year.
"After recently meeting with our school principals, our certified, classified, parent and student advisory group, I gained valuable insight and feedback regarding our return to school and our schedule moving forward," said Supt. Lawson.
Supt. Lawson's decision means that students in the district will continue to attend school in-person four days per week while participating in NTI/targeted small-group instruction on Wednesday.
Lawson hopes that keeping Wednesdays as NTI days will provide students with an opportunity to get ahead/catch up on their work.
HCS students returned to in-person learning on March 22. Currently, Lawson says that over 6,000 HCS students are attending in-person classes, with around 1,000 students attending virtually.
