Dozens of community members and parents showed up to a meeting this week of the Auburn Enlarged City School District Board of Education.
The turnout was prompted by the District’s decision to go fully-remote for the start of school.
Parents were upset with the decision, even as the district said that around a 1,000 families said they would opt-out of in-person learning.
“We know the best thing for students is to be in school,” Superintendent Jeff Pirozzolo told Finger Lakes News Radio. “But with the state guidelines in place it makes this impossible to do.”
Pirozzolo said that even more changes could be on the way. The District spoke with state officials this week, who were providing evolving guidance on how different parts of school would resume next month.
He hopes a hybrid schedule of learning can be achieved by mid-October.
