More NWA Students Prefer In-Person Learning Over Virtual Classrooms

Mche Lee

Bentonville and Springdale school districts are seeing shift to in-person learning as students head back to school this semester.

  • Around 250 students (or likely their parents) made the decision to switch from virtual learning to in-person instruction for the 2021 Spring Semester, says Rick Shaeffer with Springdale SD. Overall, Shaeffer says parents are feeling safer and more confident in the schools as Covid numbers have stayed relatively constant
  • Springdale schools kicked off the year Monday, while students in the Bentonville SD are starting in-person classes on Wednesday. More information about different approaches schools are taking can be found HERE
