WEST JORDAN — Class will be in session, in-person, for Jordan School District this fall.

At least, it will be four days per week.

The Jordan School Board unanimously approved a motion Monday that would bring students back to school for in-person classes Monday through Thursday, with each Friday being used for online classwork, small-group learning, and additional teacher consultation.

Superintendent Anthony Godfrey used the words “guided,” “directed,” “supervised,” and “accountable” to describe each Friday. Board members, who approved the motion 7-0, said they hope it will not be taken as a three-day weekend each week.

Four other options were presented to the board, including one for a “traditional, in-person” class model, or what education looked like prior to the state’s soft closure of all Utah schools due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Another plan would’ve seen half of all students attending every other day, with new groups of small classes alternating on a Monday-Wednesday-Friday or Tuesday-Thursday schedule. A similar plan would’ve seen students report to class on alternating weeks, with every other week spent learning online, as well as another that would have alternated between mornings and afternoons.
