Owensboro Public Schools (OPS) finalizing plans to help students improve their grades during virtual learning.

The district is kicking off a campaign to help engage parents and students in response to recent reports of an unusually high number of students with failing grades.

According to OPS, there has been a 25% increase among middle school students with at least one failing grade.

The school plans to send learning videos to parents and students, showing them ways to keep track of their student's progress.

They also plan to implement more Zoom meetings to offer students additional assistance.

District leaders say, they are open to suggestions, welcoming any ideas that can help families of students transitioning to the virtual option, which could remain in effect for the next several weeks, if not longer.
