BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — For the 2021-2022 school year, Livingston Parish Schools will offer students in grades 3, 4, and 5 an option to learn via a hybrid virtual program, which is an expansion of the district’s fully virtual program that is only available to students in grades 6 through 12.
The virtual and hybrid learning options are unrelated to the coronavirus pandemic, and any students who cannot return to in-person learning due to health concerns related to COVID-19 will use a different program to learn, according to LPPS spokesperson Delia Taylor.
The hybrid program, called LPLTC Virtual 3-5, will allow students to have three days of virtual instruction each week. For the other two days each week, students in the program will receive in-person instruction for three to four hours at the Literacy and Technology Center campus.
Applications for the program are now open, and the priority deadline to apply for the upcoming school semester is Wednesday, June 30.
Kim Albin, the principal of the Livingston Parish Literacy and Technology Center and the Elementary Virtual Program, is available to answer questions about the hybrid program via email at Kimberly.email@example.com.
