Bemidji Area Schools to set back-to-school plan

The Bemidji Area School Board is scheduled to set a safe learning plan for the school year during their meeting this evening. 

According to the state’s Safe Learning data, Beltrami County, for the two-week period ending August 1, had a new case rate of 18.21 per 10,000 people.

With that rate, elementary students would be able to attend full in-person classes, while middle and high school students would use a hybrid learning model.

Superintendent of Bemidji Schools Tim Lutz

The meeting will be available on the district’s YouTube channel.
