DUNLAP (HOI) - Dunlap School District's superintendent says that students will return to classes for a full five-day week in the fall.

Dr. Scott Dearman released a YouTube video on the District's official channel outlining some of the changes families can expect from a proposal still in the works. Some of the topics addressed included a hybrid learning model similar to the one adopted by Peoria Public Schools last week. That approach would integrate both in-person and remote learning into the curriculum. He expressed he doesn't feel like the approach will work for their specific system.

"I did a cost-benefit analysis, and I just don't see much benefit in doing that," he says.

Dearman also spoke about how he doesn't expect all students in attendance to wear masks, citing the difficulty already present with handling large groups.

"There's got to be some compromise, and we'll work on that."

Committees will start meeting next week to get a plan approved for the district.
