COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
Columbia Public Schools students finished their first full week in hybrid learning Monday.
CPS Superintendent Dr. Peter Stiepleman joined ABC 17 News This Morning to talk about how the return has been going.
Meanwhile, 307 CPS students are currently out due to COVID-19. Forty-five of them tested positive for the virus.
The 14-day rate per 10,000 people in the district has steadily decreased since students started hybrid learning. It went from 74.9 on Jan. 19 to 64.1 Monday night.
Still, this rate is more than 14 greater than the number that indicates a safe level of community spread of the virus for hybrid learning.
