BIXBY, Okla. -

The Bixby Public School Board has voted on their back-to-school plan for the fall semester.

The Board voted to divide the student population into two groups for the start of the fall semester, with only one group on-campus at a time. Under this plan, the two groups of students would each spend a week learning in-person, and a week learning online with staggered start dates. After three weeks of class, all students would move to online learning, while the district decides whether to keep students at home, or repeat the whole process for another three weeks.

The district has 3 sets of safety protocols for in-person learning, depending on the number of COVID-19 cases in the district. Parents have the option to choose an entirely online learning experience, and have to make that decision by Tuesday night. For more information on the logistics of the plan, follow this link here.

Superintendent Rob Miller said, "Our ideal goal is to bring everyone back after labor day. Still with masks, still with social distancing as we can make it work. But that is our goal. If it doesn't work, then we're set up for distance learning."
