AMES, Iowa -- The Ames School District is reversing its position on sending middle and high school students back to class full time, in-person.
Just a week after voting to keep a hybrid learning model, the board voted Monday night to send kids back to their buildings on February 1st.
Ames high school and middle students will still have a full-time remote learning option.
The board’s action comes as the Iowa Legislature starts debate on a state law change mandating districts give parents the 100 percent in-person option.
Elementary school students in Ames have been back in their buildings since January 4th.
