SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio — The Shaker Heights School District said they are preparing to move to in-person learning when they are able to do so.

Supt. David Glassner said ‘we are not meeting the needs of our students so we need to return to in-person instruction.'

According to the superintendent, 70% of families want to return to in-person learning.

The district says they have lost a number of students to private schools when they announced an all-virtual start to school.

A return to in-person learning was scheduled for Monday, but that was delayed when Cuyahoga County went red.

Teachers will be back at school on Monday to see what classrooms look like so they can give safety feedback to the district.

School officials said families will receive weekly updates about reopening and that schools could reopen with a minimum of two days' notice.
