Medford School District announces complete return to in-person learning

MEDFORD, Ore. — Students in the Medford School District will be allowed to return to in-person learning full-time.

The district announced the decision to go “ALL-IN for ALL students” on April 2. The plan will be put into effect on April 12, meaning the approximately 12,000 MSD students can return to physical classrooms with safety protocols in place.

“This decision was not made in isolation,” MSD Superintendent Brett Champion said. “In addition to logistical concerns, we heard feedback on the need for planning time from teachers and staff to reconfigure schedules and rework lessons for in-person learning.”

Champion explained the move is the best choice for students’ education and mental health.

MSD provided the following schedule that will go into effect on the 12th:
