Local Schools Partially Re-Opening; Full Opening Planned for April
Portland Public Schools has started rolling out Limited In-Person Instruction (LIPI) at schools around the district while making plans to begin offering hybrid instruction in April.
LIPI started at Rieke Elementary on February 26. Ida B. Wells-Barnett High School starts LIPI on March 1, followed by Robert Gray Middle School on March 3. Students will be on campus in small groups for a few hours at a time.
LIPI is on-campus instruction offered for a small targeted population of students designed to meet the needs of specific groups based on needed educational, relational, social-emotional, curricular, instructional, and/or assessment supports.
The hybrid model plans for a wide-scale reopening of school buildings for all K-12 students. Families will have the choice to continue with comprehensive distance learning or move into a hybrid model.
