The District 84 Board of Education Sleepy Eye unanimously approved adopting a base learning model for the 2020-2021 school year and other COVID-19 related matters Wednesday. Students will follow in-person learning for grades K-6 and a hybrid learning model for grades 7-12 when school starts later this month. The model was recommended by Supt. John Cselovszki and Brown County Public Health Director Karen Moritz. Cselovszki said 48 students, 8% of 537 enrolled students, opted for virtual (online) learning when school starts this fall. He said the school will have virtual learning coordinators to guide students in addition to their online instruction. Cselovszki said the school received a number of grants recently including a $75,000 state grant to provide 100 iPads and a software package to equitably identify computer talent in second and third grades.
