COLLETON COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The Colleton County School District will be submitting a new reopening plan to the South Carolina Department of Education on Wednesday which includes a face-to-face option.

The school district had its plan rejected because they did not offer a face-to-face learning option.

The district’s new plan includes either a virtual start, or a “blended” start which is 2 days a week face-to-face and 3 days virtual.

The face-to-face model will use an AA (Monday-Tuesday), BB (Thursday/Friday) schedule format.

District officials say the idea is to start virtual and gradually transition to in-person learning, while giving students an option to have virtual learning for the year.

A registration survey determining parent choice will be available on the Colleton County School District’s website on August 6.

The deadline for completion will be Tuesday, August 11. Families that do not respond to the survey in time will automatically be placed in the blended learning.
