Coronavirus: Trotwood-Madison Schools to be online for 9 weeks

Trotwood-Madison City Schools will host the first nine weeks of the 2020/2021 school year completely online, Superintendent Reva Cosby said.

School officials proposed three different plans; virtual classes, blended classes and in-person classes. The decision to begin fully virtual was made with feedback from the community, parents, staff and the Trotwood-Madison Education Association.

“The current status of Montgomery County and the guidelines of the Ohio Department of Health leads us to believe that providing 9 weeks of a 100% virtual program is the best course of action for now,” Cosby said. “This plan allows us to monitor and make adjustments as necessary.”

Cosby said she was hopeful that COVID-19 cases will decrease in Montgomery County so the school system can safely consider in-person or blended options. More details will be available on Monday, July 20 on the school district’s website, she said.
