Metro Des Moines Schools Try to Sharpen Plans After Gov Reynolds Order

IOWA - Metro Des Moins school districts are continuing to make adjustments after Governor Kim Reynolds call for schools to be open half the time for in-person classes.

The West Des Moines District has determined that its option for families to choose between online and on-site classes meets Reynolds' order. West Des Moines has set a deadline of July 31st for families to make a decision for the first semester/trimester.

The Ankeny district is holding a community forum Thursday to answer questions and further discuss its plan for starting classes. The forum takes place at 4 pm on Cisco Webex. Ankeny currently is offering families a choice between online, on-site and a hybrid of both.

The Des Moines district has asked families to continue registering kids under its plan to have kids attend in-person classes one or two days a week while conducting the rest of its schedule online. Des Moines has said it's sent a letter to the Department of Education asking for approval of its plan.
