Taylor County Schools

Blended Learning

For the first nine weeks, students are in a schedule that blends time spent at school and home while participating in their learning. A Blended Learning scenario is used to reduce time spent in larger groups, to reduce cross contamination to provide more time for sanitizing and to assist in mitigating risks.
