MANAHAWKIN – The Stafford School District announced that schools will no longer be doing two-week remote learning after November break.
The Stafford School District is one of the few districts in Ocean County that started the school year with students attending in-person learning five days per week. The district also gives parents the option to have their students learn remotely or through the hybrid model.
After Superintendent George J. Chidiac sent a letter about the plan to go virtual from November 9 through 20, many school board members and candidates disapproved of the original plan because it didn’t go through the board of education.
Chidiac disclosed that the two-week remote learning plan was retracted due to the immense response parents and the community had over it. Schools will instead go back to in-person learning and will continue to without any disruptions or other scheduled breaks.
