NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. - The New Hartford Board of Education met on Tuesday night. Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction, Allen Hyde, gave an update on making changes to the hybrid learning model.
The district decided to form committees to help come up with modifications to their current hybrid plan.
According to Hyde, the committees are finalizing their proposals for recommendations to the hybrid model. They have been compiling information, feedback, and input from the whole school community, he said.
"We are nearing completion and will finalize all recommendations, K-2, 3-6, and 7-12," Hyde said. "They will be presented to our staffing and curriculum meeting on Friday, Nov. 13 at 12 o'clock."
Parents and teachers say they have been frustrated about this process. They say they just want a decision to be made.
"For the sake of the children, the parents, and the teachers in the district, can someone please make a decision and stick with it," Amy Rizzuto, a teacher and parent in the district said.
Final proposals for recommendations to the hybrid model are expected to be presented and deliberated on at the next meeting, which is Tuesday, Nov. 17.
