ROSEBURG, Ore.— Roseburg Public Schools will be offering a limited in-person learning option to students and their families starting this month.

Right now, the district is under a full distance-learning model as directed by the state due to the recent rise in COVID-19 cases.

However, district officials said they are still able to bring a limited number of students for limited hours on-site. They said the goal is to give extra support to students who may be struggling with distanced learning.

“Every family, every student is different," said Roseburg Education Association president Camron Pope. "There's different levels of parental support at home."

However, one parent told KEZI 9 News that they fear it will make distance learning harder for students. 

“I think they really need to stop the back and forth, stop the 'oh we’re going to do a little bit but then we’re going to pull back' because it’s only hurting these kids," said parent Amy Shaw.

Other parents said they're all for the new option because they beleive it will benefit students in the long run. 

“it’s a huge bridge that students need, if they do it safely," said parent John Knott. 

They said the limited in-person option will not be required and will be voluntary. They said they will be offering it on Dec. 9 and Dec. 16 to students in sixth through 12th grade.

However, district officials said they are looking to expand the program after winter break.
