A small number of students with disabilities in the Rochester City School District will be able to return to in-person instruction in January, the district announced Thursday, while other students will continue with online learning.
About 800 children in “specialized programs” in grades K-12 are eligible to return to the classroom four days a week beginning Jan. 4, Superintendent Lesli Myers-Small said.
Those are students with significant developmental disabilities including autism; they constitute about 3% of district enrollment. For other students, the district will reassess at the end of January.
