BEEKMANTOWN — The Beekmantown School District is set to start its 2020-21 academic year on Sept. 14 with a variety of educational options for families.
“We did consider absolutely anything, and in the end I think we were able to provide two really good educational options,” Superintendent Dan Mannix said.
The district will be offering both in-person and virtual options for kindergarten through Grade 12, as well as continuing to allow home school.
In-Person: Students and teachers will attend class in-person, five days a week.
The Beekmantown Virtual School of Learning and Development K-12: This virtual learning option includes four-and-a-half days of virtual learning and a half-day of in-person learning and socialization. All kindergarten classes will be half day. This option is not available for PreK.
Home School: Home school parents take on the full responsibility of educating their children.
Roughly 30 percent of students have opted for remote learning,
